She calmly adjusted her glasses on her little nose and opened her laptop. Firstly, she created the little sausage profile on her favourite BDSM pervert network. As profile picture she chose the picture of the idiot licking the neck of a champagne bottle. She had saved it especially for this moment, and under it she added: call me only after midnight. She then went to credit sites, insurance, sex toys and other cancers of the internet where she left his contact details. She smiled in satisfaction and went back to tinder hunting.

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 March 2023, the group has 10,790 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, Luchian Abel, and Vlad Mușat. (Drawing by Adrian T. Roman)
