{EXT. SPACE, OLAM-CHUPHSHAH – DAY}

Satan, Azazel, and Malphas are under the Shade of light.

SATAN
We’re not alone anymore.

MALPHAS
Of course, we were never alone.

SATAN
No, I mean; alone, like alone.

MALPHAS
(looks around and sees nothing other than stars, planets, rocks, comets, black holes, and empty dark space)
Hmm…

SATAN
Someone spied on my knowledge.

AZAZEL
Who could do such a thing?

SATAN
Shamayim’s fools, of course.

AZAZEL
But how?

SATAN
I’ll get him. Tell everyone to be on the watch for any sense of idiots from Shamayim.

{SHAHAR}

The Elders are standing around the pole; which is the doorway to Olam-Zaku. Rosh-Seraph is standing closer to the gate.

There is a widescreen above the Elders, through which the angels at Mizbeach-Halal are watching at them.

SHAFAT 
It’s time. One person has to go first. Therefore, Let the One; step forward.

GADOL 
(moves to the pole)
Today,
(exhales)
I accept to reduce myself to become a soul. I wish to go with my powers so that I can be able to withstand Satan in Hades…

SHAFAT
(interrupts)
Gadol!
(through the mind to Gadol)
There are so many eyes and ears around us, just go in there.
(loudly)
You are hereby named Moses!

{INT. SATAN’S PALACE, OUKHAH – NIGHT}

Satan and his executives are sitting on flames.

AGRAT 
It seems like they’ve forgotten about their preserved.

BELETH 
Why do you think so?

AGRAT
We are the Egyptians’ gods. Don’t you see that they’ve been abandoned?

SATAN
No, the Elders have a way to relate with them, else, by now, they would be serving us; the Egyptian gods.
(suddenly stands and all the flames go off. The Seed in his hand glows very brightly)
I command you to show yourself!
(throws a force from the Seed and it grasps and shows Hudiel)

HUDIEL 
(struggling to escape Satan’s trap)
Let me go!

SATAN
Hudiel, my beloved.

HUDIEL
(still struggling)
I am no such thing to you!

SATAN
(moves very fast and touches the head of Hudiel, a great force pushes him back and he holds his ground. He leaves the head of Hudiel)
Is that it?

HUDIEL
You’ll get nothing!

SATAN
Hahaha! I’ve already got what I needed. I’ll kill him before he’s able to carry out his mission. Now, it’s time to dance for me.

HUDIEL
No!

Suddenly, a bright light covers Hudiel and the energy from it pushes Satan and his executives away.

{EXT. SHAHAR – DAY}

HUDIEL
(pants)
Lord Raguel, please, why did you do that?

RAGUEL
(smiles)
Tell your master that you were in a critical situation and I came to your rescue as your only hope.
(walks away)

HUDIEL
(pants and looks at Raguel)
Wow! But I had it all under control.

RAGUEL
That’s what it looked like!

{INT. SATAN’S PALACE, OUKHAH – NIGHT}

SATAN
(breaks the walls)
Damn you, Raguel!!!
(to Abyzou)
Kill all the newly born males of the Elders’ preserved in Egypt. One of them will be born there soon. Let me see how they can get through this.

ABYZOU
Yes, my Lord.

SATAN
Be fast!
(Abyzou disappears)
You!
(to the Executives)
Summon the Universal council.

MALPHAS
Tonight?

SATAN
Yes, tonight, fool!

{HUDIEL’S PALACE, MICHAEL’S TERRITORY – DAY}

Hudiel, Gabriel and Michael are sitting on a round golden cushion. Shade of light is covering them.

HUDIEL
If we do not react quickly, it may be too late.

GABRIEL
We’ll always have our ways.

MICHAEL
Tell me, what was it like?

HUDIEL
What?

MICHAEL
What was Satan’s hold like?

HUDIEL
I was powerless for a moment but then my strength was growing slowly and steady in me before Raguel came.

GABRIEL
Raguel?

MICHAEL
How did he even know you were there?

GABRIEL
No, that’s not the matter because it’s possible.

MICHAEL
Hmm…

GABRIEL
He’s been following you.

HUDIEL
Satan never would have detected my presence.

GABRIEL
Ok?

MICHAEL
(to Hudiel)
Please leave us.

Shade of light goes off and Hudiel disappears.

GABRIEL
(waves his hand and Shade of light covers Michael and him)
He was tracking the boy. Funny enough, the boy knows.

MICHAEL
No matter what he’s trying to prove, he shouldn’t have intervened. What if Satan was able to imprison him?

GABRIEL
I’m baffled. But why would Raguel expose the boy and weaken him for Satan?

MICHAEL
(eyes glow reddish)
We need to alert the Elders.

GABRIEL
Hey, control yourself. We can handle this.

MICHAEL
We?

GABRIEL
I’ll handle it.

MICHAEL
(eyes become normal)
Well, I think I should leave all the Olam-Chuphshah missions to Raguel.

GABRIEL
Not yet until I find out why he did that.

MICHAEL
I think I know why.

GABRIEL
Why?

MICHAEL
Raguel wants me to appreciate him, I’ve never really appreciated him for what he’s done for the Most High.

GABRIEL
Hmm, then give him what he deserves.

MICHAEL
Yeah,
(nods)
It’s time to let go of my ego.

Gabriel smiles.

Suddenly, Raguel and the other Archangels appear, and they start laughing.

MICHAEL
Wait! What’s going on here?
(to Gabriel)
You mean this was your plan?

ALL THE ARCHANGELS EXCEPT MICHAEL
(in unison)
Let go your ego!

MICHAEL
Guys! Satan now knows our plan, hope that wasn’t part of this.

GABRIEL
Sure, it is.

MICHAEL
What? Why?

GABRIEL
You know, the Elders are going to become humans. Hope you know what that means.

MICHAEL
That’s their choice, besides they gave us the choice to do the same. Don’t tell me you’re trying to use Satan to stop them.

GABRIEL
No, never! I can never be a part of such.

MICHAEL
Then why is this?

GABRIEL
(looks at Raguel)
Tell him.

MICHAEL
What? Ok?

RAGUEL
Tsalach came to me and talked about Satan. He said I should try and make him understand that the coming of the Most High’s son is real.
(keeps quiet)

MICHAEL
Come on, Satan knows that.

RAGUEL
Will you listen?

MICHAEL
Ok…

RAGUEL
You know, Satan may still doubt it. But Tsalach said it would be better to make him know that even the Elders are making themselves low just in preparation for this event.
(sits)
He said the Elders wants to remind Satan that the door is still open for him and that we don’t know if the Most High’s Son: will be able to take it likely with Satan after all that he did to his father.

MICHAEL
Why wasn’t I involved in this plan?
(looks at Gabriel)
Am I not a member of this family?

CHAMUEL 
Michael, you have to understand that we…

GABRIEL
(interrupts)
It was the Elders’ idea that we keep it a secret from you until it’s done.

MICHAEL
(sighs)
No one trusts me.

GABRIEL
No! It’s for a reason and you don’t need to fight it. I believe one day, you’ll know why.

MICHAEL
(rests his back on the seat and keeps a sad face)
Hmmm…

SELAPHIEL 
(to Michael)
What is that?

BARACHIEL 
What is what?

SELAPHIEL
Michael.

MICHAEL
Hudiel,

SELAPHIEL
What’s with him?

MICHAEL
He’s been tricked. You see, I don’t like when I’m being used like an animal.

A worrying look appears on the faces of the Archangels.

GABRIEL
Michael, what is that?

MICHAEL
I won’t stop Hudiel if he’s up to anything stupid. You should have used someone else.

RAPHAEL 
Can’t you control him?

MICHAEL
I can, but not against his will,
(winks)
He’s filled with extreme anger, though.

GABRIEL
Control him

MICHAEL
It’s already too late. However, I’ll try to clean up his mess.

JEREMIEL 
What is he up to?

MICHAEL
We’ll know at the right time.

GABRIEL
So, what do we do?

MICHAEL
Wait.
