Prompt: Write a short story about a man who discovers a magical portal

Tommy’s heart was pounding as he approached the cryptic symbols etched into the door of the abandoned warehouse. He’d always been intrigued by the myths and legends of magic, and this looked like the perfect opportunity to explore them further.

He touched the door, and it opened smoothly onto a hidden world. The air was cool and refreshing, and the colors were more vivid than anything Tommy had ever seen. He wandered through the portal, enchanted by the surreal images that filled his mind.

Suddenly, he felt something touch his hand. He looked down to see a small, cuddly creature looking up at him with bright, gold eyes. Tommy couldn’t believe his luck. He scooped the creature up into his arms and hugged it tight.

As he walked back through the portal, he decided that he would definitely come back here.
