Fuck you along with your whole gross drunken race, fuck your slutty race of a debauched fellow you are. Well, I, trusting you, leave you in line at the green tomatoes and what are you doing? Find you in the back of the store, on the empty crates, sucking on beer, the damn drunkard, and this slutty saleswoman sucks your shit? Does she have gold teeth, silk lips, for you to let her do it? Wait to see how I shorten your biography for both of you. Don't run, animal, you're still going to fall prey to my knife.

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 September 2021, the group has 7.150 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)
