You can also make a salad out of them, because it's vegetable protein, and he is fasting, right? Or you marinate them. You can also put them in a stew, with polenta.

He will puke his guts out, you'll see. It then attacks his liver, kidneys and brain. You wait a little longer and he'll go into a coma. I never fail with Viper Mushrooms. I have experience.

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)
