{EXT. HUMAN COMMUNITY, EARTH – NIGHT}

There is a serious pandemonium, as some people no longer understand what others are saying.

Some people’s skin colour change.

They begin to find anyone who understands them. The people leave the city with the ones who have the same language, similar appearance and skin colour as them.

Dogs begin to bark, Goats; bleat, Cock and hen; crow, horses; neigh and so many other animals make their sounds.

MAN
(to a Dog)
Hey, billy, what type of sound is that?
(the dog barks and runs away)
What is happening to us?

All the animals begin to run away as humans beat them for making strange sounds other than speak as they used to.

LATER

The whole place becomes as quiet as a graveyard. Everyone is gone except a few others who understand themselves!

The atmosphere of earth thickens, the part closer to the ozone layer become turbulent and start rising above the ground to some extent and stop.

WOMAN
(standing with a boy. Both looking into the sky)
The sky is growing taller, today is a cursed day. The tower can never reach the sky anymore.

BOY
Who’s going to build it now that almost everyone including the animals is somewhat crazy and gone?

WOMAN
We’re leaving too, what happened here today is a great mystery, son.

{SPACE, OLAM-CHUPHSHAH – DAY}

Abyzou transforms into Michael, while Azazel transforms to Raguel. They both disappear faster than the speed of light.

{GOLDEN ROAD, SHAHAR}

Azazel and Abyzou are unconsciously floating in the air.

Michael and Raguel appear near Azazel and Abyzou.

Michael touches Abyzou’s head while Raguel touches Azazel’s head.

{SPACE, OLAM-CHUPHSHAH}

Azazel and Abyzou appear at the very spot where Michael and Raguel were. They look into each other’s face and smile.

{SHAHAR}

Michael and Raguel are walking towards the gate.

RAGUEL
I can’t believe what just happened. You’re a genius, Michael.

MICHAEL
Thanks! I want Satan to learn something about us.

RAGUEL
Learn what?

MICHAEL
Though he may acquire powers and make himself a god, he still lacks what we have in us.

RAGUEL
Yeah, we’re better. But that wouldn’t have been possible without the Ladder-way.

MICHAEL
Whatever, the point is, we’re in control of the ladder-way.

RAGUEL
That’s what you should have said all the while I was listening to you.

MICHAEL
What?

RAGUEL
Yeah, I was expecting that.
(exhales)
We own the ladder-way; humans lost it with the Seed. However, since it is a sacred way, Satan can never make it or use it for any purpose even though he’s with the Seed.
(slightly squeezes his face)
Well, I think that’s what I was expecting to hear.

MICHAEL
Hahaha! That’s why I said he still lack what we have in us; though he’s made himself some sort of a god. Got it?

RAGUEL
Whatever!

MICHAEL
Good! Next time, learn to read minds.

RAGUEL
(smiles)
All right! My happiness is that he can never revert what we did because he added his ‘order’ to ours.

MICHAEL
That’s what being wise does to those who think they’re what they’re not.

{EXT. SPACE/EARTH, OLAM-CHUPHSHAH – DAY}

Satan and his executives are standing in space above the earth.

SATAN 
(roars)
Arrrrrrrr!!!
(to Azazel and Abyzou)
I told you to alert me, what were you doing?

AZAZEL
I really can’t understand how but I never noticed, my lord.

ABYZOU
Wow! I’m speechless.

SATAN
(flies into Earth)
The water and clouds!
(shouts)
Who did this!!! I will destroy you!
(sees a young lady having her bath in the pool. He moves closer to her, suddenly, a dog runs from behind a bush. He possesses the dog and bark at the lady. The lady gets out of the water, screams and runs away. He comes out of the dog)
Arrrr!!! It can’t even speak to humans anymore!
