You got me in two words, two precise moves, before. I moved you to the center of my heart one step at a time towards forever. I smiled like a lunatic queen, aware of vulnerability's power and I let you move me around. We both surrendered in front of the world, blowing up any other possible moves that could have opposed destiny. Now, you'll have to endure my freedom to love you, riding together on the wild horses of life, taming them for the new kingdoms, my king.

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)
