Despite my shy nature, I agreed to make love with the lamp on. He told me he was getting turned on visually. I agreed to let him braid my hair into two pigtails. Apparently it's a fetish of his. I didn't say anything when he wanted to pour champagne in my pussy and drink it from there. I said: drink as much as you want, but make sure you don't get drunk. But there's no way I'd ever accept being slapped on the bottom with that long, thick plant related to onions. It's like I can feel my mother breathing down my neck while making a stew.

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)
