Is it too tight? No, don't worry. But I do not like it 'cause they are pink and furry. My wife was standing in the middle of the room, dressed in a tight black leather suit, with a whip in her hands. Such a sexy motherfucker. My luck's in! 'I hope I can nail it', she says. 'Tomorrow I do the commercial for these bitchy whips'. We will get a bonus. I am lying in bed. I am ready. I squint and I see how she cracks the whip as a pro. 'God, help me through this, too!' Last year, when she played a nurse, my right buttock was blue. And I hear. 'Ahoy, ahoy, children and brothers, stay put and... What the actual fuck?'

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)
