I love you for being a misogynistic and for lacking confidence. You're such a man when you condemn women who love eroticism. Pity for the woman who gave birth to you, because she raised you out of a lack of love for her own femininity. However, all of them did the same, out of fear of being considered easy women. But, darling, what is easy in life? Being a pregnant woman, apparently. Narrow-minded woman, you educated your son to shut the mouth of another woman. It is said a man puts his hat on and leaves. Not today, because I have the hat and I'm wearing the pants.

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 every few days. The group's coordinators are Florin Piersic Jr., Gabriel Molnar, Răzvan Penescu, and Luchian Abel. (Drawing by Adrian T. Roman)
