The Shikigami of Chance Excerpt

Chance sneaked up on me. One second I think Life is over and the next I am being bombarded by second- and tertiary plots and baam I got Chance and Power and Night. For a long time I’ve wanted to write about twins, and pairs of twins have always pranced around the inner drawers of the part of my brain where plots live.

Seishirou and Shojirou completely hijacked a pair of twins I had in mind a while back. However, they were on the other side of the law. Then again, I really did not think that a twin brothers would be allowed to work in the same law enforcement team. Originally they were Germans of all things XD so I am not completely sure of how the change happened.

Why a Casino? Why not? XD It is after all a good way to move humongous amounts of money in milliseconds, and the twins would actually be in contact with all those dollars. Looking back, and with the current economic situation, it would probably have made more sense to make it a Casino in Bali but… oh well, call it artistic license?

Title: The Shikigami of Chance, Osaka Guardians, Book 2

Synopsis: What is luck? It is not only chance, it is also creating the opportunity, recognizing it when it is there, and taking it when it comes (Natasha Josefowitz). It was luck that made Nagai Seishirou and Nagai Shojirou be born identical twins. It was chance that made them become members of the Osaka Shikigami yakuza clan. Now they have the opportunity to prove themselves, in Las Vegas, half a world away from the place they call home.
