I see a picture of two young people in a bed on my feed. One of the girl's breasts pops from behind the boy's shoulder. Not too much, just enough to not break the Community Guidelines. Under the title 5 times in a night, rating: Details in the first comment. I find out that a bear attacked a flock of sheep 5 times on the same night in Frăsinet village. A scam. I'll only read serious news from now on. For example, Eternal youth. Two old people are happily walking on a beach. In the first comment I see an advertisement for a more efficient pill than Viagra.

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 February 2023, the group has 10,500 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)
