Their meeting was not by chance…it was orchestrated.
As one of the four Chosen to the Kahoali Queen, Moto is a warrior with extraordinary abilities. In his pursuit to discover answers about the devastating night terrors that plague him and threaten his people, he finds his heart and soul on another world. Though Kahoali only bond with other Kahoali, he cannot deny the connection between himself and this outsider, or the signs the bonding process has begun.
After the unexpected death of her foster parents five years earlier, Kaily worked hard to achieve a quiet life on Earth. When a dark warrior invades her life, her dreams, and her very existence, her quiet life changes forever. Through him, she discovers a past she never knew she had, and one she doesn’t want to exist. While she longs to return to the simple life she left behind, she cannot deny the connection between her and this warrior, or the bond being created.
When Kaily is in danger, Moto does the unthinkable…he brings her to Center Village of the Kahoali home world. There they must choose between the bond they share and the expectations of their past. The choices they make will impact the fate of the Universe itself. But are these choices truly their own? Will their connection save or destroy the Universe?

Moto skimmed his fingers over the surface of the water in the bowl delicately balanced on his thigh. The surface of the water held an image, now etched into his being to the very core. He didn't know why one such as she captured his attention with such a profound affect on him. There was nothing extraordinary about her. She lived on a world full of Inhabitants who possessed no knowledge of the Universe. They displayed no abilities to touch the energy which flowed throughout the entirety of the Universe, and it included her.
His current dilemma sparked his travels from his home world in search of answers and brought her into his awareness. If not for his need for answers, she would not exist in his reality, but she did. She kept drawing him to her. At times he would seek her out in person, and other times in the bowl of water he used as a looking glass. He made certain she remained oblivious to either form of intrusion into her private life and world.
He couldn't help himself. Ever since he first laid eyes on her, he felt drawn to her. Something about her entranced him and kept him going back. Even when he told himself he wouldn't, he did. It didn't make sense. She was no one of consequence and not someone who could help him. He found her by chance on his quest for answers, nothing more, nothing less. She meant nothing to him. Yet, somehow, she meant everything to him. It didn't make any sense.
"If only you could help me." Moto whispered as he caressed the surface of the water and the image it held.
The image in the bowl turned towards his whisper as if she heard him. He knew she couldn't hear him. The movement and timing of it was nothing more than an illusion. She sat at ruins. They were the same ruins he found her at the first time, and the same place he often found her. He couldn't understand why she would spend so much time in a place where the building crumbled around her feet. Yet, she seemed to find solace there. He felt the peace which emanated from her in those ruins.
He continued to skim the surface with his fingertips as if he could caress her soft fair skin with the barest of touches. He imagined her skin felt soft and satin smooth to the touch. In addition to not speaking to her, he avoided touching her at all costs. He did want to touch her and in far too many ways better left unexplored. There were complications. The biggest complication being her origins. She didn't live on Ki, and thus considered an outsider. Outsiders found no welcome in the villages, especially not his. Center Village he called home since becoming one of the four Chosen to the Queen. Moto didn't know what Queen Shakti would do if he brought her to his world. He knew his Queen to be a fair Queen, but as a Kahoali, she kept to the Kahoali ways. He did too, for the most part, when it suited him.
Another complication was the girl herself. He didn't know what she
