{EXT. SPACE, OLAM-CHUPHSHAH – DAY}

ABYZOU
The building is almost done. I’m impressed!

SATAN 
Impressed? I thought you were the one who didn’t like the structure of the tower, now you’re impressed?

ABYZOU
Yeah, with the way they’re going about it.

SATAN
(looks at Abyzou with a surprised look on his face)
Hmm…
(looks back to earth)
Whatever!
(observes earth)
Hey, what is that?

MALPHAS 
What is what?

SATAN
The sea storm, can’t you see it? It may take away those heap of sands meant for the tower.
(to Azazel)
Azazel!

AZAZEL
Yes, my Lord

SATAN
Go and calm the river.

MALPHAS
And it wants to rain,
(points at clouds over another heap of sands a bit far from the tower/work site)
There!

SATAN
(to Abyzou)
Abyzou!

ABYZOU
Yes, my Lord.

SATAN
Push the clouds away.

ABYZOU
Yes, Master.

{SEA/SKY/HUMAN COMMUNITY, EARTH}

Azazel appears in the water; sinks to the bottom of it, and open wide his hands. A cloud of white dust comes out of his hand, spreads in the water and the storm gradually stops.

Abyzou appears in the sky and points into the dark clouds, white smokes come out of her hands and enter into the air. The clouds suddenly move away from the worksite.

Humans rejoice as the darkened clouds suddenly disappear. They all begin to breathe-in fresh air and become thirsty. They all suddenly rush to their containers while others to the river to drink water as if they were thirsty for years.

{SPACE}

Abyzou and Azazel arrive and stand beside Satan.

SATAN
Well done, my children. Let us go to my palace, we’ll be back here.
(to Agrat and Beleth)
Both of you, watch over this planet. Alert me if you see anything weird.

ABYZOU
(quickly)
Please, let us do it!

SATAN
Who?

ABYZOU
Azazel and I.

AZAZEL
Me?

ABYZOU
Yes, you!

AZAZEL
Whatever.

SATAN
All right
(to others)
Let’s go!

Satan and the others disappear except Azazel and Abyzou. Azazel looks into the face of Abyzou and they both laugh.

FLASHBACK

{EXT. GOLDEN ROAD, SHAHAR – DAY}

Michael gives a container containing a white powder to Raguel.

MICHAEL 
This dust contains thousands of languages.

RAGUEL 
Oh my goodness. I know!

MICHAEL
Great! So, you will pour it into the sea; it will replicate into all the waters that exist on the planet. Whoever drinks any water that originates from the planet will have an amended speech.

RAGUEL
(with a surprised look on his face)
I know all of that! And you, what are you going to do?

MICHAEL
I’ll pollute the air so that they’ll thirst.

RAGUEL
Damn it! I know! So, how are we going to do this undetected under Satan’s watch?

MICHAEL
I’m going to be very fast at this. Open your mind, I’ll capture one of Satan’s executives, copy the information on his mind to you, accept it and use it to override everything you know, you can get it out when we’re done.

RAGUEL
Okay.

MICHAEL
Transform to Azazel.

RAGUEL
Me?

MICHAEL
Shut up and do it.

RAGUEL
What about you?

MICHAEL
Don’t worry about me.

RAGUEL
All right! But wait, how is he not going to find out?

MICHAEL
We’ll copy all the information and activities we experience with those bodies unto the original beings and they will think it was real.

RAGUEL
Hahaa! Sounds good… Let’s do this!

Shade of light covers Michael, he blinks his eyes and Raguel transforms to Azazel.

{SPACE, OLAM-CHUPHSHAH}

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

Suddenly, Azazel and Abyzou disappear and re-appear so fast that no one notices the change.
