In front of the block you have two answers. One. He loved you deeply. Two. He didn't love you at all. Does the block hurt? Apparently it does. How much? About till they unblock you. Or until you block someone else. Like a revenge block. And if all goes well, the love is great and you end up seeing each other (at my place or yours?) at the block, the possibilities branch out into blocks that don't fit five hundred characters. The important thing is not to damage the branch block, because the heart is gentle and can't take a shock. On the right side in my case.

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 July 2022, the group has 8,750 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)
