Wonderful creature, you charmed me from the very first moment. You smiled thievishly showing your front teeth, color b1, biterminale dentation resolved, prosthetic tooth on the 13th and 23rd fang. A correct bite and advanced abrasion. That got me thinking, it means you have bruxism, meaning unresolved emotional problems, but love makes everything right, my dear. I carry your bright smile with me, in my breast pocket. I'll pick a flower and come to you. Sir, your denture, you've lost your denture.

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)
