"Oh, you'll see when I'll make Chincon to punch you in the nose to make your blood flow and you'll run out of blood in that stupid head, you're so bad, you stole my toy car. Wait and see how I'll tell Cichician aaand he'll kick Chincon in the mouth so all his teeth will fall out aaand he will kick you in the stomach to let your blood flow aaand you'll puke. That it's my car, that I found - you stupid head, I found it first.
Nay, it's mine because I found it first. And if you piss me off, I'll call Ciac Noris: Daaad.

Real Fiction is a collective project started in 2013 by Florin Piersic Jr. The concept of Real Fiction continued to exist as a Facebook group, after a volume of stories was published at Humanitas Publishing House. (In January 2021, the group has 3.000 members.) The authors write ultra-short stories, setting their texts within the limit of 500 symbols (in Romanian language, so in English the limit might be a little different) - a flash-fiction exercise with an almost daily changed topic. The group's coordinators are Florin Piersic Jr., Gabriel Molnar, and Luchian Abel. (Drawing by Adrian T. Roman)
