I don't know what made me stay in the Molobongo tribe for good. I had chosen a month-long vacation for our honeymoon. How could I know their habits, as on the agency's website there were only pictures of the beach, the ocean water in all its glory. They described them as extremely attentive and warm. Oh yes warm, truly hot. From the first night we arrived there, we were offered, as a welcome gift, a tall, slippery young adult on the stretched skin of the well-defined muscles for me and the best hut for my husband.

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 every few days. The group's coordinators are Florin Piersic Jr., Gabriel Molnar, Răzvan Penescu, and Luchian Abel. (Drawing by Adrian T. Roman)
