This is the most important one. The last one. We'll do it just like we did with the others. It was complicated from the very beginning. From the main entrance, with those weird access codes. And we managed. We had the map, took the optimal course, nobody saw us and there were no victims. All according to plan. So you'll use spray on her too so she won't film us, we break into the big safe of the bank, take as much as we can and we'll be on top. What do you mean offline? Hey, we got signed out again and we didn't even get to save at the last checkpoint. Shitty game.

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 January 2022, the group has 7.830 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)
