Hello, Neluțu here. Ioan. I'm on the highway. No idea, but I'm take a bath as soon as I arrive. I'm get real clean off these people, no soap needed. I'm with the boys, Boss, my horses got the hazard lights on in front of the gas station. Got that silly Michiduță to watch my six. Yeah, this one, six-six-six? What? We're not allowed? You got any idea who my father is? Bravo, bro. You know what I mean. No worries, bro, it won't take long until we \'refinished here. What do you mean "who sent us"? Haven't you already started the job? We came to finish it by-the-book. Got it? By-the-Book.

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 December 2022, the group has 9,880 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)
