{EXT. MIZBEACH-HALAL – DAY}
All the Archangels and Angels gather at Mizbeach-Halal as usual. Each clan perform their skills on the platform, and then they sing a Mass rendition (chorus music). But at the end of everything, Ahavah refuse to show his presence.

{AB-OLAM}
Ahavah shivers, his seven armours are before him but he is not able to see what is happening in Shamayim. He struggles for a while and then relaxes.

AHAVAH

Well, if I can’t show them my love today, I’ll do that another day.

{INT. HALL, MELTSAR}

YAKACH

Whoa! After all the spectacular skills they exhibited, father didn’t seem to be impressed.

SHAFAT

That is strange because today the twelve clans performed their best.

YASHAR

Rosh, what is your take on this?

ROSH-SERAPH

Maybe Yakach is right, father was not impressed. You know, what we cherish may not be what he likes.

{EXT. LARGE PYRAMID HALL, LUCIFER’S TERRITORY}
Lucifer stands in the air, his cabinets are behind him, eight hundred billion angels who are leaders from his clan stand on the ground below him, and pay attention to him. Shade-of-light covers them.

LUCIFER

With what I’ve gathered from Gabriel, of course, we all know who Gabriel is. We could be very powerful than the Elders, or even the Most High. I want to give you a choice; you are free to live with the other clans here. I will take those who will follow me to their true home with me.
(they applaud him)
A place without laws, a home of peace and true love.

AN ANGEL

Master, where is this place?

LUCIFER

The place could be here or somewhere else. Now listen, I have uncovered so many things while I was away doing my meditations. The Most High will never oppose us even if we do evil. Nevertheless, the Elders would do all they could to stop us. I want you to know this, our stars came first, the stars that gave birth to the Elders and other angels and Archs are baby stars compared to ours. The Most High made a mistake by giving the authority to the Elders. I want you to rise, we shall take our rightful place and rule even the Elders and we shall never be cheated anymore. Even the least one among us shall be a king.

CROWD

(yells)
Yeah…!

ABYZOU

(goes closer to Lucifer)
My Lord, are you sure that the Most High will do nothing?

LUCIFER

(smiles)
I will be like the Most High.

ABYZOU

How?

LUCIFER

During my meditations, I discovered that if anyone aspires to be like the Most High, the Most High will go away and probably make a new home for himself.

ABYZOU

Wow!

LUCIFER

He cannot oppose himself, he did it once and he lost everything he had.

ABYZOU

Like what.

LUCIFER

His glory. He lost his glory, now, we are his glory; the offspring of Boqer the first star. He won’t touch us. We’ll rule here forever while he’ll go away.

ABYZOU

Is Michael on our side?

LUCIFER

Don’t worry about Michael. He’ll obey my command.

{INT. AGIEL’S PALACE, CHAMUEL’S TERRITORY}
Shade-of-light is covering the palace.

CHAMUEL

(points at AGIEL (A male angel of his clan) in the face)
Never ever harbour any member of the Arch; my family, in your kingdom without my knowledge.

AGIEL

Master, but why? He was friendly.

CHAMUEL

(lowers his hand and sighs)
Well, not anything scary, but an Arch can change your order.

AGIEL

What do you mean?

CHAMUEL

Archangels can make you become disloyal to your Clan-Master and make you loyal to them.

AGIEL

Isn’t that against a natural law?

CHAMUEL

Not to Lucifer. He can do that and the Elders will do nothing.

AGIEL

(Michael appears at the door)
But…

CHAMUEL

Shut up!
(turns)
Now go, let me see what brought him here.

AGIEL

(nods)
Okay.
(Shade-of-light goes off. Agiel disappears)

CHAMUEL

(to Michael)
Is there any problem?

MICHAEL

How did you know?

CHAMUEL

I know something brought you here.

MICHAEL

You’re right.
(waves his hand and Shade-of-light covers them)
I want you to interpret something for me.

CHAMUEL

Okay, like what.

MICHAEL

(places a stone on the wall, and a sculpture appears)
Here.

CHAMUEL

What is this?

MICHAEL

That’s why I came.

CHAMUEL

Oh! I see, one of your play for the arena?

MICHAEL

Is it that obvious?

CHAMUEL

Seem like.

MICHAEL

Tell me what it means.

CHAMUEL

Why don’t you know the meaning of what you created?

MICHAEL

I just want to be careful.

CHAMUEL

Okay!
(points)
The water: represents all life. The trees: represents free will and no law. The fire represents evil and war. The eagle represents power. The birds in chains: represent the authorities. The star: represents the new king. The staff at the side of the star: represents a stolen order that will help the king defeat the authorities.
(nods)

MICHAEL

Is that all?

CHAMUEL

Yes.

MICHAEL

So how would you explain this, because to me it doesn’t make any sense?

CHAMUEL

Through evil and war, victory will triumph.

MICHAEL

Okay, let’s assume this is real. How can the king be stopped?

CHAMUEL

First, no one can stop the king if the eagle bows to him. Hope you’re not this king because with what I see here, you might be the Eagle. When the Eagle sees the king’s war formation and war swords in the hands of the birds in the chain, the Eagle should begin a war against the King, only then can he be stopped.

MICHAEL

What about the fire?

CHAMUEL

Evil; that is, the King will use deceit and war to overcome the authorities. Hope this is not what I’m thinking.

MICHAEL

Like what.

CHAMUEL

Hope you’re not trying to make fun of the authorities and this former king? You really need to be careful.

MICHAEL

Well, it’s just a game for the Most High and that’s why I came.

CHAMUEL

One more thing,

MICHAEL

What.

CHAMUEL

The stone.

MICHAEL

What stone?

CHAMUEL

(points)
Under the water. And the dove flying away.

MICHAEL

Do they mean anything?

CHAMUEL

The stone represents the king. He was ones a slave before he became king.

MICHAEL

Slave?

CHAMUEL

Yes, slave. According to your sculpture, the king was a slave to the authorities, but he will rise to be a king who will rule all life.

MICHAEL

What about the dove?

CHAMUEL

The dove represents the former king. He will go away and will never return. The question is; who is this former king you are referring to. These images are kind of representing something that already exists and is going to happen.

MICHAEL

Just a newly designed game for the arena. Nothing more.
(stretches his hand towards the sculpture and it becomes a stone)
Thanks a lot, brother.

CHAMUEL

Well then, I would love to see Hudiel take the role of the king in the arena.

MICHAEL

Why.

CHAMUEL

I want to see how a slave can become king through war and evil.

MICHAEL

(smiles)
Whatever.
(Shade-of-light goes off. He travels in the speed of light and disappears)

{EXT. QADOSH-AMMUD}

ROSH-SERAPH

(kneels; he covers his fiery body with all his wings. He sparks his body with very bright light and invokes Ahavah’s spirit. He speaks through the mind)
My loving Father, tell me what troubles you.

AHAVAH

(through the mind)
Tell the Elders that Shamayim is corrupt, and I am losing my strength, my own creation is rejecting me and forcing me to destroy it.

ROSH-SERAPH

(through the mind)
Why

AHAVAH

(through the mind)
All I see is darkness. Someone has betrayed me.

ROSH-SERAPH

(through the mind)
Who is this person?

AHAVAH

(through the mind)
I can’t, all I see is darkness. Tell the Elders, tell them now.

{INT. HALL, MELTSAR}
Shade-of-light covering the hall.

ROSH-SERAPH

(to the Elders)
That is what father told me.

SHAFAT

This is a terrible news.

ROSH-SERAPH

One of us may be the betrayer.

SHAFAT

(to Rosh-Seraph)
That can never be true. You see all that is on our hearts, we are filled with love and humility. We can never betray Father.

ROSH-SERAPH

Then who?

YAKACH

The Archangels.

ROSH-SERAPH

None of them can weaken Father by any means. The people with such powers are The Elders, Cherubs and Seraphs. Cherubs and Seraphs are not in their will, but you are.

SHAFAT

Archangels are in their free will and they are capable to weaken Father if one of us aids them. Or if they figure a way out which is evil.

A Saddened look appears on the faces of the Elders.
