A short story.
When Luke’s wife leaves him, he reaches the edge of despair and does just what comes naturally: He gives up and hangs himself in his garage. But while he twirls away at the end of the rope, a foulmouthed and plain-speaking being in flux—a fluxer—pops up out of thin air to offer him a second chance.
Luke accepts the fluxer’s offer and so starts on a journey of self-discovery.
