I bought a camera to save my memories. In time, they would be lost from my phone and maybe even from my soul. The storage space is low in both cases.
What I didn't know was that the device actually saved memories. I found out this when I deleted some pictures from Rome and, with them, the memory of the most beautiful holiday of my life.
 Do you understand? That's why I don't want to leave my device with you, you always press the buttons at random. On second thought, take it. Here are the pictures from our wedding.

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 February 2021, the group has 4.300 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)
