{EXT. MIZBEACH-HALAL – DAY}
All the Archangels and Angels gather at Mizbeach-Halal to worship Ahavah as usual. Each clan perform their best-of-best-new-skills on the platform, and then they sing a new Mass rendition (chorus music). However, at the end of everything, Ahavah did not show his presence. Lucifer smiles and flies to the platform.

{INT. HALL, MELTSAR}
The Elders watch Mizbeach-Halal through the screen before them. Rosh-Seraph is with them.

YAKACH

He’s going to shut us out again.

BERAKAH

We should stop him, right?
(the screen before the Elders suddenly becomes blank)
Oops! Too late already.

QARA

We can’t continue to remain silent if this continues to happen.

SHAFAT

If it happens again, we will act. That is a very great sign of disrespect.

ROSH-SERAPH

Shafat is right, if it happens again, act.

{EXT. MIZBEACH-HALAL}
Shade-of-light is covering the whole place.

LUCIFER

Today is that day and time that we shall have one voice and stand for the Most High. The Most High knew this day will come, that’s why he made us. I want you all to know this; Father sent a message to us that there is a betrayer in the midst of the Elders. But it is very obvious that the Elders all have one mind and think in one direction, which simply means they may all be the betrayer, which the Most High was talking about.

GABRIEL

(through the mind to Michael)
Do you feel what I feel?

MICHAEL

(through the mind to Gabriel)
I feel heat.

GABRIEL

(through the mind to Michael)
It means the betrayer is here.

MICHAEL

(through the mind to Gabriel)
Tell the others to look around, maybe one of the Elders have sneaked into our midst.

{AB-OLAM}

AHAVAH

(struggles to show his presence but a force is pushing him back)
It’s worship hour and my own creation now rejects me. Now, where should I go? Oh no… I can’t start all over again without the crown of order by my side, and I can’t even get in. Secondly, if I leave the power of order there, it will consume whoever wears it and he will destroy all life and take his own life at the end. And all these would be in vain. I made up my mind to follow this path in other to revive my only Son. Hmm… what have I done to myself? I was so sure that this would work, what then is this? Oh no! Not again, I must make it!
(struggles to show his presence)

{INT. HALL, MELTSAR}
There is no Shade-of-light in the hall. Suddenly the Elders hear the cry of a woman in the hall.

SHAFAT

(touches the table in between the Elders and a screen appears on it)
Boqer, what is it?

BOQER

(appears on the screen before the Elders and sobs)
Lucifer has stolen the Crown of Order. He released a powerful spell that will cause blindness and confusion between you and anyone that can stop his evil intention.

ROSH-SERAPH

(angrily)
You knew this, why tell us now if you didn’t aid him?

BOQER

He deceived me at first to gain entrance and then trapped me in darkness.

YAKACH

How did you release yourself now?

BOQER

The agony and innocence of my beloved Father released me.
(the screen closes)

ROSH-SERAPH

When Father needs us most is now.

SHAFAT

We must do something.

YAKACH

All those confusions were caused by something above us, the Power of Order.

SHAFAT

We can’t approach him with that crown.

BERAKAH

Well, Rosh is here.

ROSH-SERAPH

No, you don’t understand Berakah. If he controls you with it, he can control even me here with you. I can never risk that.

SHAFAT

That’s what he wanted. He wanted us to attack him so that he will use the order on us. However, the Power of Order won’t control any Archangel or Angel unless first used on us.

TSALACH

Wow! Such a clever being.

KOACH

(to Tsalach)
Hey! This is no time to admire a betrayer that defiled our holiness to the extent that the Seraphs lost trust in us.
(Rosh-Seraph keeps an apologetic face)

TSALACH

So, what are we going to do now because we can’t peacefully show up there without using force?

SHAFAT

Michael won’t fight him if he doesn’t get a sign from us. This means we have to show up. This is where we need the Cherubim.

ROSH-SERAPH

Oh no… the presence of a Cherub can cause a permanent destruction to both the crown and Lucifer. I don’t think that’s what Father wants.

ANAH

If the angels see us in war rage, they may freak out and side with Lucifer, besides we don’t know what he’s been feeding them with all these while.

ROSH-SERAPH

(smiles)
There is a good news for us.
(they all gaze at him amazingly.)

SIMCHAH

We look forward to it.
