I wonder why serial killers don't think about work efficiency? Is it so hard to dig the pit where you will put the body first and then take action, instead of digging with the victim next to you, in bad weather, in the rain and darkness? It would be much less stressful. It's just a suggestion for those who want to be professional. Ideally, you should hire someone for this, an intern, a personal assistant. I am looking for a professional, discreet gravedigger to work at night for a long-term relationship.

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)
