These new ones from the company went like idiots all day to obstacle races, the IT idiot overturned his ATV, and the squirrels at the reception kissed the big boss on the ass non-stop. Harassed by this, I drank dry all day. In the evening I went to dinner, the boss gave it ahead with the initiative, the spirit, the cock of the small penis. A junior interrupted him: Boss, either increase our salary or let us eat. Until Monday, we're equal, right? Yes, this generation has another chance, I thought cowardly.

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 April 2021, the group has 5.600 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, Răzvan Penescu, and Luchian Abel. (Drawing by Adrian T. Roman)
