{INT. HALL, MELTSAR – DAY}
Rosh-Seraph walks around the Elders.

ROSH-SERAPH

I couldn’t read them. The son of Boqer thought he can see me with all his mighty dark eyes.

YAKACH

Hmm… Dark eyes!

SHAFAT

He thought you were evil.

GADOL

Even with his white eyes, he can’t see a Seraphim either.

ROSH-SERAPH

The young man’s mind is already corrupt and he is up to something, which may be against the law.

CHEN

Seriously?

ROSH-SERAPH

Yes.

SHAFAT

Rosh, do you think he can corrupt Michael; my boy?

ROSH-SERAPH

I doubt but don’t be surprised if he succeeds. Lucifer is cunning.

TSALACH

I don’t know, but somehow the love I feel for him fades.

SHAFAT

We will do our best to work on him.

TSALACH

Hope we won’t hurt him.

SHAFAT

We are only trying to make things better by knowing his intentions. Lucifer has a lot of influence on the angels, If we set up a secret investigation on him and he finds out; since he somehow sees things before they happen, we may loss all the Archs and angels, and I don’t think that’s what we all want. We have to be very careful, else we bring a curse upon ourselves in the process. At least, for now, we’ve discovered that his mind is not fully with us.

{CAVERN PASSAGE, UNDERGROUND, LUCIFER’S TERRITORY}
Abyzou and Azazel walk through the passage, the walls illuminate light. Shade-of-light covers them.

ABYZOU

Now, I have three leaders from Raguel‘s Territory to convince.

AZAZEL

I have four leaders from Chamuel‘s. We have to be careful with our master, he seems to be angry all the time.

ABYZOU

I thought I was the only one who observed that.

AZAZEL

But do you think the Elders are not treating us well?

ABYZOU

(stops walking and stretches her hand before Azazel to stop him)
hmm…

AZAZEL

(stops walking)
Yes?

ABYZOU

It is obvious that the Elders are doing their best to see that we are satisfied so that we can give Holy Father our best.

AZAZEL

Did you regret anything?

ABYZOU

He promised us more powers and control over others.

AZAZEL

You trust him. Don’t you?

ABYZOU

Of course, I do. I can read his mind towards us, but he will do the worse if we ever turn our back on him.

AZAZEL

I see the love for us in his eyes too. I’m only troubled by his fierce anger, sometimes I feel like leaving his order.

ABYZOU

We’ve already sworn the eternal oath to serve him, there is no going back. Don’t forget that…

AZAZEL

I know.

A door appears before Abyzou and Azazel. Shade-of-light disappears from around them. Then they enter the door and the door disappears.

{GLASSY PYRAMID HOUSE}
A door appears. Abyzou and Azazel walk out of the door and the door disappears. Lucifer is sitting on a crystal light while folding his hands.

LUCIFER

I am proud of your brilliance.
(waves his hand, Shade-of-light covers the house)
It shows that you are like me; your true father.
(Azazel and Abyzou smile and glance at each other)
What I need now is their commitment to our plans.

AZAZEL

(mouth shakes)
Um… Should we train them for war then?

LUCIFER

No… Only train our clans, we only need the trust of other clan members. I don’t trust them that much in battle, they may turn against us.

{EXT. BARACHIEL’S TERRITORY}
The sky is blue, different shapes of houses, trees, flowers, and glowing lights are hanging in the sky. The sky is randomly changing colour to Pink, later green and purple, etc. There are great designs in the sky as well.

A Spherical house is randomly changing in colour and spinning at the centre of the Territory. There are so many beautiful houses with very strange shapes in the Territory.

{INT. SPHERICAL HOUSE}
The room is illuminating different colours of light randomly after five seconds. Barachiel, RAZIEL and HAAGENTI are standing around a small illuminating spherical image.

//This image is like a map/architecture which is used by the two angels to explain their ideas to their master//

Other angels are busy doing techie things. Haagenti and Raziel are telling Barachiel about the image before them.

HAAGENTI

(points at the top of the illuminating spherical image)
In this house, you don’t need to walk around in it. The house will take you wherever you wish to go in your mind but only within the room.

Raziel touches the object and the object automatically opens.

BARACHIEL

It’s empty, why is it empty?

RAZIEL

Now, the house is intuitive. It uses the information on the mind of the visitor to decorate and fill up the room.

BARACHIEL

(walks around the illuminating spherical image)
What if I want it to be as big as the universe when I go in?

HAAGENTI

That’s exactly what you will see but the outside will be normal.

BARACHIEL

Assuming two or more persons are in the room, what will happen?

RAZIEL

The house will only take the best design from the mind of one person among them.

HAAGENTI

Just for things not to be complicated because if each person sees what’s on their mind, there may be lots of confusion.

BARACHIEL

Then you better work on that and improve on this technology. Nevertheless, you may not be able to improve on it if this one is not yet implemented.
(to Raziel)
All right, go on.

RAZIEL

(touches the object. The open space closes; a layer appears around the object)
Now the layer you see here will automatically bring you into the house if you have the intention of going into it.

BARACHIEL

Wonderful!
Raziel and Haagenti smile.

HAAGENTI

Once we are done with the technology, we will apply its functions to all the buildings in this Territory.

BARACHIEL

Very good. I will discuss with the council if any of them will like the technology to be in their Territory.

RAZIEL

That means, we can go on with it?

BARACHIEL

Of course.

RAZIEL & HAAGENTI

(in unison)
Thank you, Lord.

BARACHIEL

But it should only be in this Territory for now.
(Raziel and Haagenti nod)
I want our great buildings to glorify Father and become the best in Shamayim.
(walks to his angels sitting around a table. They are discussing about building a new technology)

{PAIMON’S PALACE, GABRIEL’S TERRITORY}
Gabriel is dancing with Selaphiel. Amdusias is playing a golden piano. Eligos is sitting and watching at them. One part of the floor starts to open. A red and white light comes out of it.

Gabriel and Selaphiel stop dancing. Amdusias stops playing the piano. The red and white light that is coming out of the floor turns into Lucifer.

LUCIFER

Why stop the fun?
(walks towards Gabriel and widens his hands)
Come on! Give me a hug.
(hugs Gabriel, and then hugs Selaphiel)

GABRIEL

You are welcome. You didn’t give any sign that you were coming.

LUCIFER

A surprise visit will always be a surprise!
(stares at Amdusias)

SELAPHIEL

That’s Amdusias.

LUCIFER

One of your best. I can see the name on his chest! And of course, every creature must know who brings down Father’s glory
(smiles)
with his marvellous musical skills.
(Selaphiel and Amdusias smile. He looks at Eligos)
Eligos, I’ve not seen this one before.

SELAPHIEL

(smiles)
Are you telling us that Holy Father’s eyes cannot see some angels?

LUCIFER

No, I was only joking Haha! Eligos.
(Eligos nods)

GABRIEL

So…

LUCIFER

(quickly interrupts)
What brought you here?

GABRIEL

(nods)
Yeah!

LUCIFER

I came to see you, Gabriel.

Gabriel keeps one of his hands at his back and gives Eligos a sign to leave. Eligos disappears.

SELAPHIEL

I huh…

LUCIFER

(talks about Eligos)
I like him.

GABRIEL

Thanks!

SELAPHIEL

Well, I’ll take my leave now.

LUCIFER

(quickly holds Selaphiel)
O no! You can stay. It’s nothing private.

SELAPHIEL

Don’t worry, I’ve got things to do right now.

LUCIFER

(nods)
Okay.

Selaphiel and Amdusias together with the golden piano disappear. Lucifer waves his hand and Shade-of-light covers the palace.

GABRIEL

I thought you said it wasn’t private.

LUCIFER

(keeps a serious face and looks straight into the eyes of Gabriel)
Gabriel; the voice of Holy Father. Well, I came to inquire something from you. Have you heard father’s voice about Shamayim, I mean his voice; not your prophecies.

GABRIEL

May the Lord forgive you for your blasphemy. Well, there are things I’ve perceived but the message isn’t clear to me.

LUCIFER

Very good, and can you tell me why it’s not clear?

GABRIEL

I think it’s not the right time for the message to get to me.

LUCIFER

Are you sure?

GABRIEL

Do you doubt me?

LUCIFER

Of course, I’ll never doubt Father’s voice. At least you are the only creature that speaks the truth irrespective of who is listening.

GABRIEL

(walks a little distance from Lucifer)
The Elders can never trick us with father’s presence.

LUCIFER

How are you sure about that?

GABRIEL

Doubts! Hmm… twice!

LUCIFER

O sorry.

GABRIEL

Apology accepted.

LUCIFER

You know, I admire you, personally. At least, you are the only creature that will keep to the Elders’ law irrespective of where you find yourself. That reminds me, Gabriel, why do you seem to hate me?

GABRIEL

(smiles)
You got it wrong. You just said I was the only creature that keeps to the Elders’ laws and now you accuse me of hatred.

LUCIFER

Hey! Be careful.
(Gabriel nods)
I just asked a question.

GABRIEL

Well, I do not hate you, I’ll never do that. I only hate what you do which is against natural laws.

LUCIFER

Like what?
(Gabriel keeps silence)
I said like what!
(Gabriel keeps quiet. He runs in the speed of light, holds Gabriel’s neck, and presses him against the wall. He yells)
Like what!

GABRIEL

Just let me go.

LUCIFER

What if I don’t?

GABRIEL

You will break the law if you are not careful.

LUCIFER

(quickly lets Gabriel go and keeps an innocent face)
I’m sorry.

GABRIEL

(amazingly)
Lucifer, you feel remorse?
(Lucifer faces down. He holds Lucifer’s right hand)
This is what Father want us to do; to repent when we break rules.

LUCIFER

I don’t know what to do that is right, Gabriel. Sometimes I feel like doing those things you call evil to glorify Father.

GABRIEL

Father does not take pleasure in them.

LUCIFER

Then why is he silent?

GABRIEL

Because you are his beloved. He will never harm you, that is why the Elders keep quiet too.

LUCIFER

(hides his face and pops his eyes open, expressing his amazement. He leaves Gabriel and walks towards the window wondering)
Are you saying?

GABRIEL

No! Only the Elders can harm you and father will keep silence.

LUCIFER

Please, I have one more question for you.

GABRIEL

Okay?

LUCIFER

Is it possible that we can create something more powerful than us, which is capable of destroying us?

GABRIEL

Yes.

LUCIFER

What? Are you saying that the Most High or the Elders are less powerful than us?

GABRIEL

I never said that.

LUCIFER

(smiles and Shade-of-light goes off)
Thank you, Gabriel. May Father be praised.

GABRIEL

Amen!
(Lucifer disappears. A glowing chair appears behind him and he sits on it)
O no… What have I done?
