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

The man had been driving for hours, trying to find a spot to rest for the night. He had been on the road for days, and was starting to feel the effects. He had been driving for so long, it felt like he had been driving for years. He was about to give up for the night when he found a small town. He decided to take a break in one of the town’s hotels. As he was getting out of his car, he saw a bright light in the distance. He walked towards it, and as he got closer, he could see it was a portal. He walked through it, and when he came out the other side, he was in a new place. He was in a beautiful forest, and there was a house in the middle of the forest. He walked towards the house, and when he got there, he saw that it was the home of the wizard. The wizard was old, and he told the man that he had found the portal a long time ago, and that he had been using it to travel to different places for years. The man found out that the wizard had been traveling to different parts of the world, and he had been able to see many different things. The man was amazed by the wizard’s stories, and he decided to stay with the wizard for a while. The wizard told the man that he would be able to see many more places if he ever wanted to, and the man decided that he would like to try it out.
