Bia, Lia and Mia form a triangle. Whether it's equilateral or isosceles, I have no idea. I'm bad at math, but I can say Peano's axioms are a piece of cake. The result of the problem is a comma followed by infinite decimals. My spirit is now square 2, thanks to Bia.Lia and I form 90-degree angles. About Mia I only say n numbers taken as k. The solution seems to be a common tangent with Dia. Then I could give each of them a quarter of me. No matter how much I calculate, I can't get out of this vicious circle.

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 May 2023, the group has 11,260 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)
