No, I do not have. No, I haven't necessarily. I mean I have it. But it's hidden. It's under that thing. What do you mean where? It's tucked away. But it's there. I mean it's there. Down. Located in the elemental position. What do you mean where? There. It's in the area. In what area? In that part. What do you mean which part? In that point between. Between what and what? Of the two. Two what? Lips? No, no, no. Deeper. I mean, it's not in sight. It's in. In. No, sir, it's not like you put your hand on the left. Don't be a brat. Offff. You are still insistent, sir.

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 September 2022, the group has 9,250 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)
