Bro, I read the script and I'm not going to be part of this play, even if you shoot me. This story is wrong in so many ways. Well, who the hell still wears a hat? Who am I, Count Leonida? Come on. No bow either, because I'm not a cow and you have to heal me. How? What color? Why does the color matter? If you're not an erectile dysfunction, no one cares. A skirt? I hope you're joking with this title. And the storyline is so lame. Two women screwed by a wolf, saved by a hero with a bigger rifle. Nope, there is not enough meat for me in this story.

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)
