She has a pair of confusing tits. They looked big from the front, even bigger from the side. Maybe it was the tailoring? Still, how did she get them to rebel like that against gravity? I did understand, in a way, that it was a means of adapting: that perky, round ass was like a lever. So, she needed to keep her balance somehow. I must confess that the moment my Newtonian analysis reached gravity, I immediately extrapolated to universal attraction. And my wife called. And I picked up.

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 March 2022, the group has 8,050 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)
