Dude, you idiot. Dude, idon'tknowhowtotellyou, am I not as stupid as you? You said you wanted to break Razvan's account, and I though it was the bank one, not Facebook account. I brought you the laptop to make some money for the holiday, lets see now the holiday. If only I knew, I was selling it on the corner of the street, wouldn't bring it to you to stare at it. Dude, finish already and don't get me bored, that's not going to be good in court. What would you tell them? That you wanted to use the laptop only to change the theme of the day for the fictional group?

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)
