I've been putting together the plot for my next book, but there's a major sticking point among the early chapters: Delta, a girl who will go on to become one of the main characters is on her way home through a bustling city centre. Stalking her is a would-be burglar who was chased away from her home; this served as a distraction to allow the rest of his gang to sneak past the guards unseen. Boris, the secondary protagonist from a previous book, is on his way to her house in search of her father; the only person who can assist him in his quest. During the journey, he spots the burglar snatching something from her and running off. Boris doesn't know who Delta is at this point, as they've never met, but he confronts the burglar and returns part of the stolen item to the girl. Is it too much of a coincidence that the three of them would be on the same street at the same time?
