Down the Wormhole

Ethel found the portal to the other dimension in her sideboard, behind the plates her mother-in-law gave her, but that she would never rightly use. Unless her mother-in-law was coming to dinner. Which happened to be why, Ethel found herself kneeling down and pulling the dusty plates from the dark corner they occupied.

She received a faint shock, a rivulet of electricity traveled from the tip of her ring finger up her arm to her heart, turning its usual reserved gait into a quick gallop.

Her husband found her hanging halfway out of the hutch, hurrying to the other side.
