Well, first of all, I like her brown eyes, they look like two teddy bears in the snow, and here the snow is the sclerotic of the eye. Ha ha, Sclerotic sounds like a crappy magazine for people with back problems. From sclerosis to eroticism. Oh, you got it, ok. Whatever... She has a red chain around her neck, like a big smile on her chest. And I also like her skin; it's the colour of August sand. But the one from the beach, not the one made of cement. Cream or beige, which sounds better? Let get this done once and for all, now to start the letter and see how it goes.

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 November 2022, the group has 9,580 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 every few days. The group's coordinators are Florin Piersic Jr., Gabriel Molnar, Răzvan Penescu, and Luchian Abel. (Drawing by Adrian T. Roman)
