Tell me, did you enjoy Paris, bitch? You did likeeee it, how in the hell could you not have liked it? You wanted a Mercedes, I got you a Mercedes, you wanted some Louis Vuitton, I got you some Louis Vuitton, you wanted tits, lips and a Brazilian ass, what didn't you fucking want, did I mouth off? I didn't mouth off, bitch. And you know why? 'Cause I can buy you, your dad and your whole family off along with all of your shitty and especially useless education. Now scram, and tell that ass of a lawyer that I'll tear his head off if he doesn't get me out of here fast.

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)
