{EXT. PHANTOGUS – NIGHT}

Paimon and Eligos are walking under the Shade of light.

ELIGOS
The Son of the Most High’s arrival.
(sighs)

PAIMON
If that happens, I think I’ll be going back to Shamayim.

ELIGOS
Going back to Shamayim is a sham. You’ll be born on earth like a human.

PAIMON
So what. He’s coming to bring balance to Shamayim.

ELIGOS
What do you mean?

PAIMON
When I read the powers in Satan’s possession, I was able to see the mind of the Most High’s son. He’s not fully on the side of his father nor the Elders nor anyone.

ELIGOS
Another type of Satan?

PAIMON
A greater power than Satan. Satan is just an Arch.

ELIGOS
What if he turns out to be a greater evil in the end?

PAIMON
You know, left for the Most High alone, nothing would be in existence except his Son. But the will of his Son is that everything his Father has made must exist and must be governed by him because they’re the property of his father.

ELIGOS
Everything including us; the fallen?

PAIMON
I think so, it’s the very reason the Elders cannot permanently destroy us yet. The final judgement lies with the Most High’s Son.

ELIGOS
Wow!

PAIMON
But that doesn’t mean he may not destroy us in the end.

ELIGOS
Huh?

PAIMON
It’s all his choice to let us live or cease to exist. You know, we wounded his Father and we shouldn’t expect him to treat us kindly if we continue to be an opponent to Shamayim or the Elders.

ELIGOS
Hmm, I think you know much than even Gabriel.

PAIMON
I don’t know if he already knows this, you know he’s not the type that says whatever he knows to just anyone.

{PLAIN ROAD – DAY}

The Eleven Archangels are walking straight ahead.

MICHAEL 
(to Gabriel)
I’m taking Jupiter along. What about you?

GABRIEL
What?

MICHAEL
Are you going to take Phantogus?

GABRIEL
No time for that, and besides, I’m not ready to renew old memories.

MICHAEL
Hmm…

GABRIEL
I think we’re taking the whole solar system which includes your planet. Mine is in another sphere. We don’t want to alarm Satan about this.

JEREMIEL 
If he meets us there, what do you think would happen?

URIEL 
We may all attack him.

CHAMUEL 
Why?

URIEL
That’s if he poses a threat. Don’t forget, it’s Olam-Chuphshah, we can do and undo without having to answer questions.

MICHAEL
Whatever, I don’t think I’ll fight with you if he poses a threat.

RAGUEL 
Why not?

MICHAEL
Ask Gabriel, he said I should learn how to control my rage.

They all laugh loudly.

{EXT. PHANTOGUS – NIGHT}

ELIGOS
Satan wouldn’t let us go that easily.

PAIMON
Let the Most High’s Son come first.

ELIGOS
His arrival will tear us apart.

PAIMON
(looks at Eligos)
Do you want to stay here if he comes?

ELIGOS
No, I mean: we may not be the only ones that may want to pledge our loyalty to the Most High’s Son.

PAIMON
Yeah, it will tear the whole kingdom of Satan apart. However, Satan can turn things around.

ELIGOS
Really?

PAIMON
Yes, but only if he forces the Most High’s Son to bow to him and if that happens, Satan will be lord even over all that exists, except the Elders.

ELIGOS
Are you saying that the Elders may not be under the authority of the Most High’s Son?

PAIMON
Not really. However, the Elders’ loyalty will fade if the Most High’s Son turns out to become evil. The Most High wasn’t foolish when he created the Elders and they’re the greatest threat to Satan.

ELIGOS
Hmm… and if that happens, on whose side would the Most High be?

PAIMON
I don’t know
(nods)
I don’t know, Eligos.

{INT. SATAN’S PALACE, OUKHAH – NIGHT}

Satan is sitting before a spherical burning flame with Malphas.

SATAN
I’m taking back Earth again. This time around, I’ll expose the secrets of the Elders to them.

MALPHAS
Which of the secrets?

SATAN
I’ll deceive them with it.

MALPHAS
Are we not going to war against Shamayim?

SATAN
No, I want to destroy humanity first. It was because of them the Elders tampered with time twice.

MALPHAS
You know it’s not that easy to attack them with our nature.

SATAN
They can be easily deceived. I’ll expose them to space where they’ll run out of the air and die.

MALPHAS
Will that work?

SATAN
Yes, they speak one language, believe in one another, and think the same. So, it will be easier to get across to them.

MALPHAS
But you know that task is somewhat difficult for anyone of us.

SATAN
No, I’ll do this alone.

MALPHAS
How?

SATAN
I’ll possess animals, do wonders, convince and become their god. Then I’ll possess the Eldest of them to believe in the animals and influence the rest.

MALPHAS
I think that will work.

SATAN
Yes, it will. Tell others, we’re invading earth on my command.

{EXT. OLAM-CHUPHSHAH – DAY}

The eleven Archangels stand in a circle upon Earth’s solar system. In between them, is a screen showing the Elders. Light-Ray links a star and nine planets together, including Earth.

ELDERS’ VOICES
(through the screen)
Earth and all that surrounds it, move to the upper sphere; where life is fast, for the Son of the Most High comes in his glory.

The Archangels together with Earth’s Solar system begin to spin very fast. The place becomes horribly noisy and they enter into another galaxy in the speed of light. Then the place suddenly calms as the Archangels and Earth’s Solar system stop hovering very fast.

The Solar system continues to spin at its normal speed. Then the Archangels disappear.

//No creature on Earth or in any planet of the Solar system was affected or noticed the change that occurred in the Solar system.//

{EXT. SPACE, OLAM-CHUPHSHAH – DAY}

Satan and his executives appear.

AZAZEL 
What?

BELETH 
I don’t understand, can a planet hide from us?

ABYZOU 
Where is Earth?

SATAN
(frowns)
They were here.

MALPHAS
Who?

SATAN
I can smell them.
(the Executives glance at each other with a surprised look on their faces.)

MALPHAS
Them?

SATAN
The Archangels were here.

VEPAR
(suddenly appears)
My Lord,

SATAN
(to Vepar)
Speak!

VEPAR
Earth, its star and surrounding planets suddenly appear in the Milky Way Galaxy near the doorway. Was it your doing?

SATAN
You came all the way here to ask me such a question or to report what you saw?

VEPAR
I’m sorry, my Lord.

SATAN
Get lost!

VEPAR
Yes, my Lord.
(disappears)

SATAN
I think I know what they did. They want humans to age and die quick.

ABYZOU
To what end?

MALPHAS
Maybe they’re running out of time or something.

SATAN
(hisses)
Shut up! We now know where they are, let’s go!
(They all disappear)
