So, did you edit them? Yes, checked. Well, come on! Who steals an egg today will steal again tomorrow. Don't make yourselves new faces, you idiots! Lie only when it's absolutely necessary. Don't try to steal your neighbor's goat. Wtf, Moses, are you kidding me, what the hell are those? Everyone is trying to undress me, and now you? Come on. I can explain. The tablets were hard. Were, Moses, were, not was. Sorry. Were. I dropped two of them on my foot and the rest rolled down the valley. So, I used my memory. No problem, I saved them in cloud. Amen.

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)
