I've put on my latex costume and pulled down the blinds. The slave is waiting for me by the bed, on his knees, hands and feet tied. He wants me to remove his gag. He tells me that he likes to be called a parasite and a lewd, impotent guy. And I obey his wish at once. This eggs him on. Now he wants me to spank him. And, ideally, I should quote from Cuore while doing so. He also mentions that he'd like some trampling but not until he says so. And then I snap at him: Listen, who's the submissive person here anyway? Is it you or me?

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 March 2021, the group has 4.500 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)
