I had spent my celibate years alone with him. I had taught him almost everything. Coco only knew the loneliness of my soul. I raised him in the spirit of solitude and gave him the freedom of a larger cage. Until one day I forgot the door open and decided that, as I was having a raging hard-on, I should call for an escort to take the bull by the horns. A woman with a boob-job arrived and the titfuck to follow seemed perfect. Erection. I shoved it in but her smile killed it. Cavities. Coco flying. Murder, murder and he was gone. Free Coco.

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 October 2022, the group has 9,400 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)
