Keep them together, the ones for her and your allergies, you have the same schedule. If you cough non-stop and your chest is tingling, start the aerosols with Ventolin and call for rescue. Epipen should always be in your backpack when you go out with your bike. In the muscles, yes, remove the lid and down. Then call 911. Monday English and piano, Thursday art. The little one's schedule is more complex, I think you'll need help. He likes the pool. Take them in your arms every day. Squeeze them to the chest, kiss their foreheads, repeat them, everything is fine, everything will be fine.

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 June 2022, the group has 8,500 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)
