Dude, I had one guy today. A truck driver. As large as the door, but shy. I told him: hit me, cause you don't hit your mother. He tore me up, really. No kidding. Yeah, girl, he blocked my mileage, so to speak. I'll have a break at matinee tomorrow, cause my little pussy is broken. Well done, kitty. Girl, don't you have a client? Pfff. Yes. The actor is about to come. Aoow. The hurried one. Five minutes, shower included. Don't laugh, girl. Last time I told him: if you take it out, I'll take your eyes off. But how to get along with him? Shit, he's at the door. I'll call you in 15. Kisses.

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 October 2021, the group has 7.275 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)
