{EXT. HUMAN COMMUNITY, EARTH – DAY}

EIGHT YEARS LATER (Earth’s time)

A very tall-uncompleted tower made with muds and woods is at the middle of the community. A city surrounds it.

Humans are seriously working on the tower. Animals are helping humans in the building of the tower.

{INT. HALL, MELTSAR}

SHAFAT 
Yeah, I think Rosh is right. We must tweak the human language a little bit and completely change that of animals. Let us change the language of animals in such a way that animals can never speak what humans can understand. But for humans, let us amend their tongue in such a way that they can learn from one another and understand themselves.
(Rosh-Seraph nods)

SIMCHAH 
Good! So that the teachings of the Most High will get to all humans with time.

YAKACH 
That’s the best way to go about this, separating the animals from humans by their language.

ROSH-SERAPH 
They may still do the same thing when they multiply. So, let us spread all the planets, galaxies and solar systems far apart in such a way that humans can never think about visiting other planets or galaxies as it happened in the second world.

SHAFAT
You’re right, Rosh, if they advance in knowledge and maybe move to a planet where humans once lived, they’ll stop believing in the Most High and maybe tag us; evil, just as Satan is teaching them to.

EMUNAH 
That’s exactly what happened in The Second World.

ANAH 
Whatever change we do, won’t completely change what happened in The Second World from happening again in this one. It will happen, but they’ll all be separated.

AMATS 
That’s if they live in extreme peace. However, if it happens after the successful birth of the Most High’s Son, then it’s no problem.

ANAH
What if it happens before His birth.

AMATS
We won’t let them live in peace then.

ANAH
Better!

ROSH-SERAPH
Then, don’t only amend their language, also give them an urge for independence so that no one will rely on another.

TIQVAH 
Like the Archangels? Hmm… if we do that, there will be a continuous war among humans. I thought we wanted them to live without peace until the Son of the Most High comes?

SHAFAT
(glances at Tiqvah)
Hmm…

ROSH-SERAPH
We probably don’t want them to have extreme peace if we don’t want them to be easily accessed by Satan.

KOACH 
Hmm…

ROSH-SERAPH
If they somehow manage to unite when the Most High’s Son is yet to come, then all our efforts now will be in vain.

SHAFAT
That’s why we’ll make animals’ language; useless to humans, on earth.

BERAKAH 
That will stop Satan’s invasion.

YAKACH
That we stop them from going into space doesn’t mean they may not think about it later in the future as they did in The Second World.

ANAH
That’s what I said.

YAKACH
Almost!

SHAFAT
Hey, that’s not what we’re discussing.
(suddenly looks at Rosh-Seraph)
Yes, Rosh?

ROSH-SERAPH
If the Atmosphere of Earth is lifted a little bit higher and the atmosphere is thickened with turbulent winds, they can never attempt this kind of suicide.

YAKACH
Hmm?

ROSH-SERAPH
At least, not with their bare body.

YASHAR 
No matter what we do, everything that happened in The Second World may happen again.

ANAH
Again!

YASHAR
Whatever! The point is; if we’re going to stop those things, we’ll be highly involved in human affairs.
(looks at Shafat)
You know I’m right.

SHAFAT
Then we’re going to give them laws to be fully involved in their affairs.

KOACH
(frowns)
We’re not here to stop those things from happening. We’re here to make sure the Son of the Most High is born before any of those things happen.

EMUNAH
Wait! Why are we repeating things?

TSALACH 
(to Emunah)
It’s okay! It’s for a purpose…
(nods and looks at others)
I think so.

SHAFAT
(nods and suspires)
No, Koach. We also need to help humans. Let us send messengers that will teach humans our ways.

KOACH
Well, whatever.

ROSH-SERAPH
In that case, we will need to keep records among humans and use those records to discipline and direct humans from generation to generations, before the arrival of the Son of the Most high.

SHAFAT
Exactly, that’s what we’ll do.

YAKACH
I almost thought about that.

SHAFAT
(to Tub)
Summon the Archs. We must involve them in this!

{EXT. SPACE, OLAM-CHUPHSHAH}

Satan is sitting on a large throne in space directly above Earth. His executives are standing around him.

SATAN
Let me see who can come to interrupt my work this time. I swear, it’ll be an eternal war forever!
(his Executives glance at each other surprisingly)

{INT. HALL, OLAM-CHUPHSHAH}

The Eleven Archangels are standing around a bowl containing white clouds of dust. The Elders are standing around the Archangels.

SHAFAT
We are all going to administer unto humans because the Most High will manifest his power through his Son in the human world.
(exhales)
Satan has caused so many havoc in the human world to destroy the will of the Most High. However, that can never be as long as we all exist. So, he’s planned to destroy the human world again, now we are sending help to earth.
(looks into the faces of the Archangels)
But without your consent, it will be a vain move. You’re all Archangels; one family, yet, with different colours of the skin. We’re going to prepare the way of the Most High Son’s coming together.
(nods)
The bowl in front of you is filled with a curse, however, we need to add your curses too. Since we’re amending the human language in multiples, so shall we also amend their skin colour. That is, once this curse is laid upon earth, every human that had your clan’s connection, will have the same appearance as you.
(moves closer to the bowl and drop one piece of hair inside)
This hair belongs to Satan; while he was Lucifer. It will represent his clan trait. Now, once this is done, humans’ appearance will adjust to their angelic ancestral traits. They will have a similar skin colour and shape of face as you.
(keeps quiet for a while)
May you step forward and drop a piece of your hair in this dust.
(The Archangels move in uniform and drop a piece of their hairs inside the bowl)
Good!
(lays his hand on the dust and everything mixes up)
Michael!

MICHAEL 
Yes, Lord!

SHAFAT
Step forward.
(Michael steps forward)
You know what to do. You’re brave!
(sighs)
It’s on you now.

{EXT. DESERT, ROGHELAZ}

Alastor, Zepar, Bathym, Haagenti, Amdusias, Agiel, Kokabiel, Solas and Balam are under the Shade of light.

AGIEL
We all know the life we’re living now is not going to last. The Son of the Most High is coming for humans.

BATHYM
You’re right, I suspect Paimon and Eligos.

ALASTOR
Me too.

BATHYM
I think they’re up to something.

ZEPAR
Paimon now controls Satan.

AGIEL
I’m surprised.

HAAGENTI
I missed home, but it’s too late to go back now.

AMDUSIAS
No, it’s not late. You have one chance!

HAAGENTI
Hahaha! I’m not going to become a human, that’s worse than what I am now.

KOKABIEL
The Son of the Most High.
(suspires)
I don’t think I’ll fight against him. Michael is a bigger threat already.

SOLAS
You’re right, the Son of the Most High is going to be very powerful and threatening than Michael.

BALAM
When that time comes, I think we’ll have no choice than to become humans.

{INT. PURIEL’S PALACE, RAGUEL‘S TERRITORY}

Raguel and Puriel are walking to the door.

MICHAEL
(appears in front of Raguel and Puriel)
I need you to come with me.

RAGUEL
Seriously?

MICHAEL
(nods)
Yeah, seriously.

{EXT. GOLDEN ROAD, SHAHAR}

Raguel and Michael are walking towards Olam-Chuphshah under the Shade of light.

MICHAEL
(carrying a woollen bag)
I want to surprise Satan with what he has never seen before.

RAGUEL
As always.

MICHAEL
No, this time is different. We’ll do this undetected.

RAGUEL
What’s inside that bag?

MICHAEL
Our mission.

RAGUEL
Okay, we know he’s keeping watch over the earth since we moved it into the milky way galaxy. So, how do you intend to do that?

MICHAEL
That’s why I brought you along. I call it, time trick! Please just corporate.

RAGUEL
Hahaha! Okay! So, what’s the plan?

MICHAEL
Good! Now…
