Passional sex. The one in which you tear her clothes off with only your eyes before you do it physically. That dance like the Argentine tango. No rules. No compromise. Alchemy is important. The hands speak before the lips. You know that whatever she says can only be an erotic moan, because inside she is already screaming. The Touching. If there is no fire, you have no tactile sense. Every touch of her skin is both a sacrilege, and a prayer. I was reading this in a book, but my passion is roasted hazelnuts.

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 August 2021, the group has 7.000 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, Răzvan Penescu, and Luchian Abel. (Drawing by Adrian T. Roman)
