Give me a break, will you? She's not as kind and innocent as you say. Have you seen her dress? How disrespectful, you can see her panties. And, might I add, she can't stand her grandma. She went to her grandma just because her mother yelled at her, otherwise she wouldn't have gone there in a million years. On top of that, her granny even gives her some money from her modest special loan. But she spends it all at the forest bar. How do I know all of this? Well I hang out with some friends playing poker there. I even played with her a couple of times. No, not poker, but something more intimate, more erotic. So, you should cut the crap, she already knew about big eyes and big ears.

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)
