Little dog with the cu-, cu-, cu, curly dog. You good for nothing stutterer. Little dog with the curly, the curly, the curly hair, snatches, snatches, snatches. Sit back down you blockhead. And he swears he didn't sna-, sna-, snatch the duck. Are you retarded? Why are you holding your eyes closed? But I caught I caught him with his mo-, mo-, mouth. What are you doing? Are you pissing yourself? And with an egg, egg, egg in his pocket. Go back to your seat now, you idiot. Come, come, come to the general gathering. I hate you, you stupid cow, you don't talk like this to a chi-, chi-, child.

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 August 2022, the group has 9,000 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 every few days. The group's coordinators are Florin Piersic Jr., Gabriel Molnar, Răzvan Penescu, and Luchian Abel. (Drawing by Adrian T. Roman)
