I love it when you pamper me, you call me Suzy and caress me on the kitchen table. I am your secret, out of the living room we could hear rock music, which gets me even more in the mood for lips that crave me. And your fingers touch my body, oh, make me even hotter, burn me, get me drunk, I'm highway to hell when you roll the bow of your electric passion on me. The door opens, on fire as I am I set my sweet and soursops free in the general extasy as you see me. Chef, I'm thunderstruck, you made us French pancakes.

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)
