… GO TO PREVIOUS SCENES       … GO TO TABLE OF CONTENTS         … GO TO SERIES TITLE PAGE

{INT. MANSE, LEBAB – DAY}

The Eleven Archangels are sitting around their table and looking curiously on it. A screen displaying Hades is on the table.

GABRIEL 
Today is a wonderful day.

CHAMUEL 
Yeah, it is.

JEREMIEL 
We should start the connection.

GABRIEL
The Elders aren’t there yet.

URIEL 
What’s holding them?

MICHAEL 
Give them time to think.

Suddenly, Moses appears in Hades.

ARIEL 
Why is he alone?

HANIEL 
I think others are on their way.

RAPHAEL 
We need to start the connection while others are still coming.

MICHAEL
(to Raphael)
You’re right.

GABRIEL
(nods)
Rise! It’s time.

All the Archangels stand on their feet and a ring of fire surrounds them. Green  light of energy comes out of them, joins and travel through the Ladder-way to Hades.

{EXT. HADES}

Moses’ eyes glow, and all the other Elders including Shafat appear around him. The bodies of the Elders begin to glow.

The green light of energy from the Archangels collide with the glowing Elders, and a great amount of frosty gas begins to form. Gradually, Hades divides into two parts, a cold area (created by the Elders and Archangels) and a hot area.

The cold side created by the Elders and Archangels is mixed up with some fires. However, the hot side containing oceans of fire is larger than the cold side containing frosty gas and some mixture of fire.

SHAFAT
We cannot completely eradicate pain or affect a greater part of Hades for humans’ souls. Now, let us pronounce the eternal command for this place!

ELDERS
(in unison)
You shall harbour the innocent, righteous and holy souls until it is time for you to surrender them to the Authorities. That day; the day of surrendering, shall be the day of resurrection! So shall it be!

The place thunders. A tick turbulent atmosphere appears and becomes a demarcation between the frosty and hot parts of Hades.

The Elders blow air from their mouth together; the air travels to the righteous and innocent souls suffering in the Ocean of fire and drags them into the frosty part.

ELDERS
(in unison)
Sleep! Sleep!! Sleep!!! Until the day of resurrection, you shall be at rest and shall feel no pain in Hades.

The New Hades

Suddenly, Satan appears in the hot part of Hades.

SATAN
(tries to penetrate to the frosty area of Hades and cannot pass due to its turbulent nature)
Do you think you are clever?

MOSES
You’re lucky you weren’t here when we separated this place. Thank Shafat who distracted you for a while, by now you would be in an endless coma.

SATAN
I will get you!

SHAFAT
(to Moses)
This is your battle now, we’ll get you our support when due. Now, we’ll take our leave before the mad tyrant become worse than he already is.
(disappears with the Elders leaving Moses behind)

SATAN
(to Moses)
They left you! Huh? Hahaha! You’re done with your life!

MOSES
Come on, I’ll enjoy this!

Satan quickly disappears.

{SPACE, OLAM-CHUPHSHAH}

SATAN
(appears before a black hole and sees Moses through it)
There are many doorways to that place, let me see how you are going to defend yourself.
(the Crown on his head and the Seed in his hand glow. He points at the black holes)
I curse you with irreversible energy of attraction.

Satan runs in the speed of light and spins all the black holes very fast that it (the black holes) begin to draw stars, asteroids and planets into itself.

{HADES}

MOSES
(sighs)
He’s forgotten who I am.
(eyes glow, and a rod appears in his hand. He spins it very fast with his powers and emits countering energy, which freezes the planets, stars and asteroids falling into the frosty part of Hades)

SATAN
(appears in the hot area of Hades)
Hahaha! Aren’t you ashamed of yourself that I’m capable of keeping you busy for eternity?

MOSES
Time shall tell!

SATAN
Let me add to your troubles!
(disappears)

MOSES
Come on, boy; I am waiting!

{SPACE}

SATAN
(appears, open wide his two arms, and thousands of Demons appear)
Yes!
(to the Demons)
Attack that creature preventing these stars, make sure he never rests.

The Demons begin trooping into the black holes to attack Moses but they become frozen as well as the planets and stars falling into the black hole.

SATAN
(to the Demons)
Stop!
(the Demons stop trooping into the black holes)
Let him be! The stars and planets are enough to keep him busy.
(exhales)
While he’s busy, let me join my Executives on Earth. I’ll send the souls of your preserved to you there for eternity.

{INT. HALL, MELTSAR – DAY}

The Elders are standing before the Wall of Scroll under the Shade of light. A prophecy is written on it.

AHAVAH’S VOICE
(over the mind of the Elders)
The young woman; Mary: in her virgin state, shall conceive through the power of my Spirit and shall bear my Son. Thou O Elders, must name him Yeshua!

With a thunderous sound, the Wall of Scroll disappears.

SHAFAT
Yeshua!

ELDERS
(in unison)
Yeshua! Blessed be the name: Yeshua! Blessed be the name: Yeshua!! Blessed be the name: Yeshua!!!

{EXT. CANAAN, EARTH – NIGHT}

Satan is walking back and forth in front of the Executives.

AGRAT 
The protection around Joshua was unbreakable.

SATAN
An old spell.

MALPHAS 
What should we do now?

SATAN
Joshua is dead, we’ll make them forget the Elders’ laws, and lure them into worshipping us as their true god. Get to work.

{INT. HALL, MELTSAR – DAY}

Rosh-Seraph is standing before the Elders.

SHAFAT
(to Rosh-Seraph)
So, what is it about?

ROSH-SERAPH
Satan knows what he’s doing.

YAKACH
What do you mean: Satan knows what he’s doing?

ROSH-SERAPH
Gadol is growing weaker because he has used up most of his powers in defending the righteous souls.

SHAFAT
That’s terrible.

ROSH-SERAPH
We need to send him help.

GEBURAH
How do we do that?

ROSH-SERAPH
We need to send angels.

SHAFAT
That means the messengers will have two roles.

ROSH-SERAPH
Not only that, the Israelites need a king whom Mary will be born through his lineage.

SHAFAT
(stands)
Let me see Gabriel for a while.
(disappears)

{EXT. GRASSLAND, SELAPHIEL’S TERRITORY}

Hudiel is teaching an angel from the clan of Selaphiel how to fight.

Shafat, Gabriel, Selaphiel and Michael are sitting on a rocky seat under the Shade of light; watching at Hudiel and the trainee.

SHAFAT
Gabriel, you need to be fast at this.

SELAPHIEL
He’ll soon be ready.

MICHAEL
Yeah, with my good fighting ability, no one can defeat him.

SHAFAT
(to Gabriel)
All right?

GABRIEL
So far, we’ve defended the Israelites with Othniel, Ehud, Shamgar, Barak, Deborah, Gideon, Tola, Jephthah and now, Bene-Elohim; one of Michaels, is there as Samson.

SHAFAT
(nods)
Michael’s clan! That’s interesting!
(exhales)
Send a message to Samson to give up his human life, so that he’ll join Moses in Hades. We need to send him help in Hades.

GABRIEL
(nods)
I’ll do that.

SHAFAT
Prepare a King; a warrior who can sing. It is through him shall the Most High’s Son come.
(walks a bit further and disappears)

GABRIEL
(glances at Selaphiel)
We’ll use this one since he’s almost ready and besides, he can sing.

SELAPHIEL
Of course, he’s from my clan!

GABRIEL
His name shall be called David. I’m sure with Michael’s skills which he’ll be born on earth with, no one can defeat him in combat or in battle.

{EXT. DESERT, PHANTOGUS – NIGHT}

Paimon is looking up into the sky with a sad face.

ELIGOS
(suddenly appears and waves his hand. Shade of light covers Paimon and him)
Seriously?

PAIMON 
What do you want?

ELIGOS
I came to save you!

PAIMON
(faces Eligos)
Tell me, from what!

ELIGOS
For goodness sake, come on, you’re a god. Thousands of humans worship you. Are you going to let it go like that?

PAIMON
Is that why you’re here?

ELIGOS
Yes! My king.

PAIMON
(walks closer to Eligos)
I saw it.

ELIGOS
Saw what?

PAIMON
I saw it all.

ELIGOS
Come on, what did you see?

PAIMON
The Elders aren’t mistaken. The Son of the Most High is coming.

ELIGOS
He’s coming, so?

PAIMON
(stretches his hand, the sands form two stools and he sits upon one)
Hey, sit down.
(Eligos sits and keeps staring at him in amazement)
What are you staring at?

ELIGOS
(keeps his usual face appearance)
I’m listening.

PAIMON
You know, Satan you know now may be gone when the Most High’s Son is born.

ELIGOS
We’re all his followers, wherever he goes, we’ll go.

PAIMON
I thought you said you were listening?

ELIGOS
Okay!

PAIMON
Honestly, I’m afraid. We both know he has no power to defeat anyone living in Shamayim right now. At the birth of the Most High’s Son, evil will be born, and guess who’s going to bring it.

ELIGOS
Satan?

PAIMON
Yes, Satan.

ELIGOS
Where would the evil come from?

PAIMON
It’s a mystery, boy. I think it’s an old evil, which somewhat shared a part with the Most High a very long time ago and that was the evil Satan was wanting to bring back.

ELIGOS
If he succeeds then that’s a piece of good news for us. At least, we’ll be of equals with the Most High.

PAIMON
No, he’ll be greedy to share anything with you as he was from the beginning.

ELIGOS
Hmm… so, what should we do?

PAIMON
Run and never look back.

ELIGOS
Already, that was our original plans. But…

PAIMON
(interrupts)
But what?

ELIGOS
It’s too late now.

PAIMON
Why?

ELIGOS
I’m a god and I have worshippers.

PAIMON
Hey, look at me. It won’t last that way forever.

ELIGOS
So, you’re suggesting that we become humans and go to Hades?

PAIMON
Well, maybe. There is a good part of Hades controlled by the Elders, a place of deep rest.
(sighs)
At least, there will be hope for redemption as a human than being a demon.

ELIGOS
(nods)
I’m sorry, I can’t follow you. I’m enjoying my life now. Humans perform sacrifices for me, they do rituals for me and they call upon me as their god. I give them hope, and I become stronger every time I draw the Most High’s power from them, Paimon!

PAIMON
I know the powers you get from humans can make you a bit stronger and of equals to the angels in Shamayim. But believe me, these are all temporal things. Once he comes, guess what.

ELIGOS
What.

PAIMON
Humans will liberate and be of equals with him. I want to be there and that can never happen to me in the form I am now.

ELIGOS
(stands and nods his head continuously)
No! You’re going nowhere!

PAIMON
This is not your decision to make.
(suddenly covers Eligos with dark energies and the Shade of light)
Stay that way, I think you’ll love it!
(disappears)

Eligos is unable to move or speak.
