I have a date with her again. We met on a Slowdating app and after a Zoom session we liked each other. For the first date we went to the movies, we watched The Dig on Netflix; me in my room and her in hers. Cool cool. And then we went to an online book club, on Nichita's birthday. Covid free. And now we have prepared a synchronized tasting session. Each of us had their own tasting package delivered at their house. If today goes well, too, I have big plans with her. We are taking it to the next level and I am going to ask her on a date in Paris. The Louvre Museum offers a free webstreaming day when you can see its art collections.

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 4.300 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)
