The man sticks its finger into the cavity in the rock where he had poured the cuckoo blood, spread it over the gums and heavily moaned. He clicked his tongue through the lizard's urine and moaned again, then squeeze the juice from the bobcat's gizzard into another cavity and thrilled, spread it on his lips.
 The woman entered the cave with an armful of ramson in her lap, she looked at the bloodless bat, she cast her eyes at the pit hole, but she couldn't find any sign of deer pulp, or hare breast and spotted the hollows in the stone. She sharply gasped.
 What this?

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, with the texts limited to 500 characters (in Romanian, so the length of the English translation might be a little different) - a flash-fiction exercise on a topic that changes almost daily. The group's coordinators are Florin Piersic Jr., Gabriel Molnar, and Luchian Abel. (Drawing by Adrian T. Roman)
