You don't believe your comrades. The master is the first to serve. You don't give the land to anyone. If they want to take it from you, kill you first. Tica Mic's laws. When the drunkard of the village became the first communist mayor, his great-grandfather was forcibly taken to a small town room. They took everything from him, his work, 800 ha, with a mountain and everything. The son of a shepherd, who came with my father when he took Transylvania, married at 17 and 20 decorated by the King because he helped the army in the war, he died fed with anaphora and Holy water, as always.

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 November 2021, the group has 7.500 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)
