Get out of the bathroom before you die in there. She shrieked when she bumped into the beer bottles scattered around the hallway. She began breaking them one at a time. He was swearing as he looked for his toothbrush among little tubes and bottles. He knocked them all down with a sweep and left the room. He grabbed her by the waist and glued her to the wall. Her nipples got hard almost as soon as his dick. She spread her legs and lifted herself just enough for him to slip inside her. They made love there, standing, until they were one. Then they slowly parted. Brainless oaf. Stupid woman.

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)
