{INT. HALL, MELTSAR}

The Elders are watching Shahar through a screen on the table before them. Shafat waves his right hand, the screen disappears.

YAKACH
I thought he wasn’t going to send a warning.

TSALACH
Believe me, Gabriel is too soft.

SHAFAT
That’s the best thing that has ever happened to Shamayim. He sees a reason to do something.

QARA
We all have reasons for doing anything, it all depends on the content of such reason.

ROSH-SERAPH
I think it’s right time we protect Shahar.

SHAFAT
Slow down, Rosh, it will take the Most High himself to pull down that gate when it’s locked. Forget it. We will only warn the keepers never to go behind it because the Raguels are the only ones who really can go through the gate without opening it unless permitted.

{EXT. PALM GARDEN, RAGUEL’S TERRITORY}

Jophiel and Metatron are resting on a glowing seat in the garden. Four male Leader-angels of Raguel’s clan walk to them.

METATRON
To what do I owe this beautiful visit?

Prince Agares, Unit leader Andromalius, King Alastor and Governor Gamigin are discussing and laughing; as they approach Jophiel and Metatron. Shade of light covers them (Agares, Andromalius, Alastor, Gamigin, Metatron and Jophiel).

AGARES
We heard what happened to you out there, we are very sorry for that.

METATRON & JOPHIEL
(in unison)
Thank you.

GAMIGIN
Come on, tell us. How was it possible for them to overpower you both?

JOPHIEL
I don’t know how they did it but we were very weak before them.

ANDROMALIUS
What are they smoking out there that energize them like that?

ALASTOR
What if the Most High somehow supply powers to them? To be honest, it’s impossible to be stronger than an angel who has been at the presence of the Most High for nearly ten years.

ANDROMALIUS
The Most High would never do that.

GAMIGIN
We saw how brutal the attack was, it kind of suggests their mind-set towards us.

METATRON
It almost drove master mad.

AGARES
Yes, of course, it should. But why should they attack us? You know, Michael was their real rival, not any of us.

JOPHIEL
We are all their enemies according to them.

ALASTOR
Hey, guys, I think they are living better than us. What if that’s the best way we should live?

METATRON
What? Are you out of your mind, King Alastor? They appear to be enjoying but the question you should ask yourself is “for how long?”

ALASTOR
See, you won’t understand. They just don’t want any connection with Shamayim, that’s why they attacked, you guys. So, how come they came to tell us how strong they’ve become if that’s not the best way to live?

ANDROMALIUS
When Satan was here, he opened our eyes to things we never knew.

JOPHIEL
Something like what?

ANDROMALIUS
Freedom from the law and ways of playing around freewill without been punished.

METATRON
We are at war and you need to get that thing out of your heads if we divide now we will fall to them.

ALASTOR
Showing such powers to us indicate how successful they may become in the future. Forget about the present war, boy, look into the future.

GAMIGIN
King Alastor, you may be right. I think every one of us should have a second decision.
(sees Raguel)
I got to go now, guys, Master may not be happy if he sees us gossip about Shamayim.

They all laugh and together with the Shade of light, they all disappear.

{GIBBOR}

Sar-Cherub and Rosh-Seraph are standing under the Shade of light.

ROSH-SERAPH
Hope you know we have a weakness.

SAR-CHERUB
Come on, save that for your clans. You tell me things as if I don’t already know.

ROSH-SERAPH
The Elders are terribly afraid.

SAR-CHERUB
What do you mean the Elders are terribly afraid, afraid of who or what?

ROSH-SERAPH
Don’t tell me you want me to tell you his name again.

SAR-CHERUB
Ha! You mean the Arch‘s kid?

ROSH-SERAPH
The Crown is what we are all protecting. Right now as we speak, we can never retrieve that Crown from him,
(points at Sar-Cherub and himself)
not even us.

SAR-CHERUB
The Elders are taking this too far, they caused all these. They should have ordered us against him when it was never too late.

ROSH-SERAPH
You talk as if you weren’t here. We were all confused.

SAR-CHERUB
Hey! Excluding me. Father has a reason for putting you among the Elders. Sometimes tell them some of the things you tell me, don’t keep it a secret, Rosh.

ROSH-SERAPH
I know, I’m trying but I don’t want to freak them out.

SAR-CHERUB
The Elders; they can destroy this Satan with just the words of their mouth, why are they afraid, and you are there.

ROSH-SERAPH
Hmm, you won’t understand, Sar. The Elders are our weakness if they are controlled.
(sighs)
I think Satan is trying to trick them and use that power on them and of course, you know what that means. Our “will” will be transferred to him.

SAR-CHERUB
(keeps a mean face)
O my goodness! I know.

ROSH-SERAPH
To retrieve that Crown, it requires a face-to-face combat, not through words.

SAR-CHERUB
Please don’t risk their safety, they are like the Most High.

ROSH-SERAPH
Good, now you see the reason why they are afraid.

SAR-CHERUB
Hahaha! Wow, that’s a very clever way to tell me you are afraid. Now I got it.

ROSH-SERAPH
I’m afraid, yes. So should you.

Both laugh at the top of their voices.

{INT. UZZIEL‘S PALACE, GABRIEL’S TERRITORY}

Uzziel and Zophiel (two female Queen Angels of Gabriel’s clan) are dancing, three other lower female angels are playing three pianos (one each). After a while, Uzziel stops dancing.

UZZIEL
All right, all right stop the music.
(the piano players stop playing music.)

ZOPHIEL
Come on, why.

UZZIEL
Because I perceive something.

ZOPHIEL
Seriously?

UZZIEL
Yes.
(to the pianists)
Please leave.
(the three pianists disappear together with their pianos.)

ZOPHIEL
Is it that important?

UZZIEL
(pants)
Please use the Shade.

ZOPHIEL
(waves her hand, Shade of light covers the palace)
You’re tensed.

GABRIEL
What is it?
(Uzziel and Zophiel both quiver and turn around.)

UZZIEL
(dazed)
Master!

GABRIEL
It’s okay. I made you tensed. That should be the last time you will see something important and attempt to hide it.

ZOPHIEL
But how did you get here?

GABRIEL
Her intuition called me. How about that?

UZZIEL
I’m sorry for trying to hide my vision.

GABRIEL
What did you perceive?

UZZIEL
I didn’t get it very clear.

GABRIEL
I sensed it too.

UZZIEL
I think it’s about me. We were dancing freely to the Most High in spirit and the message says “you will ascend over him and be the next to your lord if he betrays your master.” Definitely, I don’t understand what that means.

GABRIEL
Satan messaged us about his new powers. But I’ve replied him with a warning, hope it’s nothing to do with that. However, I think things are changing now. You are the most humble Queen in my Territory, if by chance your vision come to pass, Zophiel shall be the next after you because she was here when it happened. Blessed be the Lord who show this to you.

Shade of light goes off and Gabriel disappears. Uzziel and Zophiel dance and rejoice.

{EXT. SHAHAR}

Michael and Raguel are standing under the Shade of light.

RAGUEL
Come on, what is taking them so long?

MICHAEL
(points)
There they are.

RAGUEL
(turns and sees Bene-Elohim (a male angel) and Adriel (a female angel) walking towards Michael and him)
Are you kidding me?

MICHAEL
What.

RAGUEL
Where are all your men?

MICHAEL
We are only giving them a warning.

RAGUEL
Gabriel meant a fight, that’s why he sent you.

MICHAEL
Hey, Raguel, I’m in charge here. So you’re going to follow my directives else I won’t go anywhere. Just listen to me first and don’t underestimate my clan. Here, we do things my way.

RAGUEL
Okay, so what’s the plan
(Michael keeps a mean face)
sorry.

MICHAEL
Good.
(waves his hands, Shade of light extends and covers the four of them (i.e. Bene-Elohim, Adriel, Raguel and Michael)
Now, this is the plan. We are taking them by surprise; they brutally attacked two of our members. But here is the warning we are going to send them, we’ll go in pairs, each pair to a planet and everything in it.

RAGUEL
Good! I love that. But destroying a planet is not a good idea, it was made by Father.

MICHAEL
I wasn’t talking to you. You are coming with me.

RAGUEL
What?

MICHAEL
Satan must not perceive us until we are done.

RAGUEL
Then, how am I going to reach that idiot called Malphas?

MICHAEL
That’s the more reason you will travel with me. Malphas is a cabinet and a right-hand man of Satan.

RAGUEL
Don’t tell me you are scared.

MICHAEL
Like I said, my rule.

RAGUEL
Okay, okay!

MICHAEL
(to Bene-Elohim and Adriel)
Don’t attack until you hear me say so. Okay?
(they nod)
Good.
(lays his hands on the faces of Bene-Elohim and Adriel)
No one will recognize you until you are back to this very spot.

RAGUEL
Great plan, I love you, Michael.

MICHAEL
Thanks, now let’s go.

Shade of light goes off, Bene-Elohim and Adriel disappear. Michael and Raguel move towards the gateway of Olam-Chuphshah.

RAGUEL
(blinks his eyes and Shade of light covers Michael and him)
Wait, Michael.
(Michael stops walking)
But why would you want to destroy planets, it’s not part of this.

MICHAEL
They take pleasure in defiling the name of the Most High in those planets, besides we are not destroying those planets, we’ll change the way they look so that it will piss them off anytime they are in it?

RAGUEL
How are you going to do that?

MICHAEL
Let’s go,

RAGUEL
Wait. Why didn’t you take Hudiel with you?

MICHAEL
He’s popular there.

RAGUEL
Can these ones move a planet?

MICHAEL
Haha! You’ll see.

RAGUEL
That’s a yes or no question.

They both disappear.

{SANDY AREA, PLANET VENUS, OLAM-CHUPHSHAH}

Angels of Satan are dancing. Berith; a young male angel of Satan’s clan under Malphas moves to a bull and tear it apart.

BERITH
Hey! Listen all of you I am Berith, I want to prove something to you all.
(group of angels stop what they were doing and watch at Berith.)
I want to prove to Master Satan that I am capable of becoming one of his cabinet members.

All the angels that hear that, laugh at the top of their voices.

AN ANGEL
You are kind of strange, what has gone wrong with you.

Berith runs in the speed of light and with one hand; he jacks the angel that spoke, and bury his head in the sand with one punch. Four others run in the speed of light against Berith and he punches them faster than they run. Their bodies fling about 30 miles away at a very fast speed.

Angels applaud him for that exhibition.

{PALM GARDEN, PLANET URANUS}

Bene-Elohim and Adriel are sinking an unending pipe into the ground.

BENE-ELOHIM
What do you think about this people?

ADRIEL
They are stupid. They plan to go to war but leave their place vulnerable.

BENE-ELOHIM
O no, I wouldn’t say that. You know they took us by surprise too.

ADRIEL
It was the keepers’ fault, they didn’t alarm us.

BENE-ELOHIM
They never had the chance.

ADRIEL
But they had time to listen to their shits.

BENE-ELOHIM
Haha! Please let’s not talk about that.

Seven male angels of the clan of Satan see Bene-Elohim and Adriel putting something into the ground.

ANDRAS
(from a distance)
Hey!
(to Bene-Elohim and Adriel)
What are you doing there?

Bene-Elohim and Adriel keep pushing the pipe into the ground.

BOTIS
(to Bene-Elohim and Adriel)
Did you hear what he said?

BENE-ELOHIM
(to Adriel)
Blind them.

ADRIEL
What? You want them to know our identity before time, why not do it yourself?

PROCELL
(giggles)
They seem to be deaf.

ANDRAS
I’ll make them hear by force.

BENE-ELOHIM
(to Andras)
Really? Don’t you see I’m busy with this?

Adriel grasps the pipe, Bene-Elohim stands and spray a dusty light. They become invisible; the seven male angels become confused and walk away.

ADRIEL
Oh! That’s what you meant?

BENE-ELOHIM
Hmm.

ADRIEL
Next time be specific, blindness and confusion aren’t the same. Hey, come finish this.

{SANDY AREA, VENUS}

Suddenly, Malphas appears.

MALPHAS
Thank goodness I saw the last scenario. Would you want to see the great one?

BERITH
I’ve trained for this for years, believe me, you won’t regret this. Yes, I want to see him.

MALPHAS
You see, Berith, the cabinet; we are six and with Master, we are seven and that seven is an ultimate number that cannot be added or subtracted. Hmm! Such a request. Believe me, we could have considered you but you are not even a King in the first place.

BERITH
Trust me, bring all the kings and put us to test in a combat.

MALPHAS
(with a surprised look on his face)
Berith, I can’t read you, unlike other days. The look on your face is kind of strange, other days you would smile at me, I thought you’ll be happy that you’re in front of me.

{UNDERGROUND}

The real Berith is trapped in chains among rocks, struggling to escape. (Michael has trapped him.)

{SANDY AREA}

MALPHAS
But why didn’t I notice you earlier?

BERITH
Because you are a fool.

MALPHAS
I beg your pardon?

BERITH
Look who’s behind you.

Malphas turns and sees Raguel, he turns back to Berith and he sees Michael.

MICHAEL
Surprise!
(waves his hands and Shade of light covers planet Venus and Uranus)
All right, Adriel, you guys, can attack.

Raguel lifts Malphas with his left hand and brutally scatter his head with punches from his right hand.

RAGUEL
(drops Malphas on the ground)
Never in your life should you ever touch any member of my family again. Fool! It will take you twenty days to heal, so don’t bother about alarming your master, he’d think you’re taking care of something important right now whereas you’re a useless piece of shit.

{PALM GARDEN, URANUS}

Bene-Elohim and Adriel fly up and pour fire over all the creatures in the planet. All the angels on the planet receive a danger alarm. They look in the sky and see Bene-Elohim and Adriel flying and pouring fire on the planet.

AN ANGEL
It’s Michaels! Attack!!

Suddenly, the north pole of the planet begins to change in direction as the pipe pierces into the core of the planet.
Bene-Elohim and Adriel release their swords, fall in the midst of the angels and start inflicting weakness into them and pinning them with their own swords to the ground very fast.

ADRIEL
(hits five angels with a punch)
You guys, forgot who we are.
(holds one angel on his throat)
I thought you’ll run.

BENE-ELOHIM
(spins among dozens of angels and pin them to the ground very fast with swords)
Where are those powers you came to show us?

Within a few minutes, they have finished pinning all the angels on Uranus to the ground.

{SANDY AREA, VENUS}

A yellow field of light appears in the hands of Michael. He points it on the ground and it opens the ground to the core and the planet stops spinning. Raguel is busy pinning angels unto the ground.

RAGUEL
(sees a bird)
Wow! You’re beautiful.

MICHAEL
(to Raguel)
Leave nothing alive except the fools!

RAGUEL
Yes, sir!
(burns the bird)

MICHAEL
(to Venus)
I curse you with slowness; your days shall be longer than your years in time to come and you shall move in the wrong direction forever because Malphas the one you harbour has trespassed against the creator.
(with a blast of thunder; the ground quakes and the sky folds)
Amen.
(to Raguel)
It’s done. Adriel, Bene-Elohim, let’s go.

Adriel and Bene-Elohim appear behind Michael and Raguel, they all disappear, and Shade of light goes off from around Venus and Uranus. However, the two planet continuous to rotate in a weird direction from other planets.

LATER

{STILL VENUS}

Satan, Abyzou, Agrat, Beleth, Azazel and Eisheth appears. Berith walks to them.

SATAN
Hahahahahaha! Michael is now an errand boy for Gabriel! Hahahaha!!
(moves closer to Malphas’ body lying helpless and speechless with eyes open)
Raguel was with him.

BERITH
(to Satan)
They took my face.

SATAN
(to Berith)
It’s okay, Berith.
(points at Malphas)
I saw it in his eyes.
(smiles and looks at Malphas’ head)
Hmm! Twenty days spell.
(to Azazel)
Take Malphas to my palace, I’ll heal him quicker than he expected.
(frowns)
I’m now angry, how dare him? If it was only Michael I’d take it, but not,
(groans)
Who is Rag…?
(to others)
Prepare for war. We’ll take them by surprise and Malphas will lead.

END OF THE OMINOUS
