The Peace Fall (1)

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

{INT. HALL, MELTSAR – DAY}

Shade of light is covering the hall while the Elders sit around their table. Shafat walks towards the wall. The wall moves closer to him and he rests his body on it.

SHAFAT
For how long are we going to be experiencing war?

YAKACH
Once a loving peaceful place, now a place of war.

GADOL
I thought we can start all over again.

ROSHSERAPH
Yes, but not while the crown is with Satan.

GADOL
Oh! I forgot that.

TSALACH
He is not afraid of any of us, his only threat is Michael.

TIPHARAH
That is because he knows we’re somewhat afraid of the power with him, if not, by now we’ll be discussing something else.

GEBURAH
Tipharah, we have a serious problem right now, and that problem is Satan. Until it’s solved, we may not be able to do something else.

TIPHARAH
Sounds like a curse. I forbid it.
(the Elders gently laugh.)

SHAFAT
I thought the Gabriel‘s warning was going to make peace.

AMATS
So do I.

CHEN
Shamayim needs our help at this point in time.

ROSH-SERAPH
Of course, that’s why we are here. But there is nothing to be afraid of, we see his every move, that suggests how we can help Shamayim in advance.

{INT. VALAC’S PRIVATE ROOM, GABRIEL’S TERRITORY}

Shade of light is covering the room. Valac, Paimon and Eligos are sitting at different corners of the room in different styles.

ELIGOS
How come I’m the only one who is more concerned about us?

VALAC
It’s not right that we should leave.

ELIGOS
Valac, I think you are afraid.

VALAC
I’m not feeling very okay with this, and besides, I’ve not made up my mind yet.

PAIMON
I’m feeling the pains Master may have if we leave his order.

VALAC
What if he descends his anger upon us as he did to Satan’s men?

PAIMON
He won’t.

VALAC
Hmm! You sounded so sure like you are he.

PAIMON
As the second in command of this Territory, he may respect me.

VALAC
Now you’re not even sure.

ELIGOS
Hey, Valac, you can stay here as much as you want; I am going to Olam-Chuphshah and live under no law or anyone.

VALAC
What if we fight against ourselves as we did before?

ELIGOS
First, we will not stay under Satan’s order, even if we do; it will be under pretence. But whatever it is, we can survive on our own.

VALAC
What?

PAIMON
Wait, I’m not prepared to fight anyone. If we don’t side with Satan we can never live in peace there.

ELIGOS
The footage sent by the Elders for everyone to be on alert shows that he is only angry at Raguel, not even Michael or Master.

PAIMON
Eligos, what should I call you?

ELIGOS
Wise one.

VALAC
(nods)
Wise one!

PAIMON
Well, that’s good. Hahaha!

{HUDIEL‘S PALACE, MICHAEL’S TERRITORY}

A flame is at the middle of the palace, Hudiel walks into the flame. Michael suddenly appears in the house and Shade of light covers the room.

MICHAEL
What is that?

HUDIEL
(turns)
Master! O… I forgot to use the Shade of light.

MICHAEL
Stop that.

HUDIEL
(walks out of the flame)
But why?

MICHAEL
Not now.

HUDIEL
Three angels from the clan of Barachiel are up to something strange so I’m trying to find out.

MICHAEL
I know.

HUDIEL
You knew?

MICHAEL
We all know. I mean the Archs; my brothers. We all know.

HUDIEL
Any attempt to prevent it?

MICHAEL
We are working on that. It generated from Gabriel’s Territory. They all want to leave.

HUDIEL
Another war?

MICHAEL
Slow down, we will control it. However, it seems difficult right now because it’s hard to deal with free-will.

HUDIEL
Hmm, it’s a virus. Seem like It’s affecting anyone in that position.

MICHAEL
No, not at all. It should have started from Gabriel, but it didn’t. That somewhat suggests that before Satan left, he did something with people’s minds, which is what we are trying to figure out. Thank goodness I protected my clan as if I knew what was going to happen.

HUDIEL
That is wise of you. The Elders, won’t they do something?

MICHAEL
I forced the Elders made a promise the day Gabriel was chosen as the next Shining One. That they will never intervene into Shamayim’s political matter unless on the ground of threat and protection. But tell no one what I just told you. However, the Elders don’t even know about this virus.

HUDIEL
Really?

MICHAEL
Yes, but it’s a secret between us; the Archs.

HUDIEL
Why would you do such a thing? But they have never intervened into Shamayim’s political matter before.

MICHAEL
Satan was so specific about taking orders from the Elders. Secondly, we were afraid that Gabriel could suffer the same fate as with Satan. Despite Satan’s evil ways, we still miss him and we’ve not recovered from the trauma it caused us.

HUDIEL
Hold it there, I understand. So, you don’t want me to check their drives myself in the flame.

MICHAEL
(points at the flame)
The flame is before you. I’m not standing in between.
(Hudiel walks into the flame and deepens his face into it. Suddenly he sees a paradise of wealth and houses built with gold. The people there are drinking and making fun. He pulls himself out of the flame and breaths heavily.)
No, no, no, no that’s not real. Don’t pretend like it is.

HUDIEL
But that’s real.

MICHAEL
You see, that’s the problem here. Nobody will believe us if we tell them it’s not real and they’d think we’re deceiving them.

HUDIEL
And that would cause a war. But you’re telling me. I believe you!

MICHAEL
For goodness sake, you can never betray me. I know you more than you think you know yourself, Hudiel.

HUDIEL
(smiles)
You could have taken me with you when you went to warn them. I would have given them a lasting warning that they won’t even think of facing us again.

MICHAEL
You see why I chose someone else?

HUDIEL
And I know you still respect him.

MICHAEL
Good! That’s why I love you, you understand things quickly.

HUDIEL
We should respond now before it is too late.

MICHAEL
An attempt would cause a war and you know what that means, Father will sorrow again. I can’t do that.

HUDIEL
If they threaten to fight, you won’t keep quiet. Right?

MICHAEL
“If!” I like that word.

HUDIEL
I’ll make an attempt to stop them.

MICHAEL
Whatever you do or wish to do, do it privately. If it breaks out into a fight, that’s the beginning of a war.

HUDIEL
So, you’re saying I shouldn’t give a try?

MICHAEL
O not again. I’m not standing in between anyone and you, Hudiel.

Shade of light goes off and in the speed of light, Hudiel runs out of the palace through the wall. A cushion appears under Michael and he falls on it exhaling heavily.

{INT. SPHERICAL ROOM, BARACHIEL’S TERRITORY}

Barachiel, Raziel and Hadraniel (a female Queen angel) are standing around a very small glowing cubic box.

BARACHIEL
(to Raziel and Hadraniel)
You summoned me, what is it?

RAZIEL
We…

BARACHIEL
(interrupts)
Another invention?

RAZIEL
Exactly, I mean Yes!

BARACHIEL
(waves his hand and Shade of light covers the room)
You no longer work with Haagenti?

RAZIEL
He has his path now.

BARACHIEL
(nods)
Hmm…
(over his mind)
He’s been affected by the virus.
(audibly to Raziel)
Okay, let’s see what we have here.

RAZIEL
(points at the cubic box)
This is a vision set.

BARACHIEL
(to Raziel)
Wait! You’ve done lots of the talking, let her assist you.
(points at Hadraniel)
Hadraniel, what do we have here?

HADRANIEL
Thank you, Master.

BARACHIEL
You’re welcome.

HADRANIEL
This technology will cause a great change to how you see things.
(points at the cubic box)
if this device is placed in a room, for instance, in the arena, it will bring whatever you are looking at before you.

BARACHIEL
The technology of Rahah-Kol. Okay, can we do a test?

HADRANIEL
Of course, we can.

With the Shade of light and the cubic box, the three of them disappear.

{EXT. TOWER}

Barachiel, Raziel and Hadraniel appear on the rooftop of the tower without the Shade of light. Barachiel raises his hand to put the Shade of light.

RAZIEL
(holds Barachiel’s hand)
No please, we are secured, trust me.

BARACHIEL
Okay, So!
(points)
You see that forest over there?

HADRANIEL
Yes.

BARACHIEL
But where is the device?

RAZIEL
It’s in our minds now.

The place changes to the forest they are watching at.

{FOREST}

The three of them walk around the forest.

BARACHIEL
This is real, I can even feel the reality of this place. Come, are you trying to trick me or what?
(touches a tree and feel its life)
We are here, this is no vision.

Raziel glances at Hadraniel and they both smile.

RAZIEL
That is the technology, Master.

BARACHIEL
Okay, let us go back now.

They all disappear.

{INT. SPHERICAL ROOM}

Shade of light appears. The cubic box, Barachiel, Raziel and Hadraniel appear in the positions they were when they left the room.

BARACHIEL
Wow! That is amazing. You mean we never left this room?

HADRANIEL
Yes, we were apparently here but optically there.

BARACHIEL
Somewhat similar to the vision flame, but this one is more real than that. I think the arena need that box.

RAZIEL
To the glory of Holy Father.

BARACHIEL
Hope you’re not using this to spy on Satan.

HADRANIEL
It doesn’t work outside Shamayim.

BARACHIEL
I know it’s forbidden. Get it ready, we should get one in this territory and one in the arena.

RAZIEL
Will they accept it? I mean; your brothers.

BARACHIEL
It’s done. They will all accept it. Haagenti has hidden from my sight, I only see him in the arena. Tell him I miss him.

RAZIEL
Why not meet him yourself?

BARACHIEL
I don’t know what my presence or persuasion can cause him, I better leave him alone. I think he needs time to discover himself.

RAZIEL
Hmm, okay.

HADRANIEL
Master, is everything all right?

BARACHIEL
Hadraniel, everything is all right. Concentrate on your works, both of you.
(Shade of light goes off and he disappears)

The spherical room becomes large and thousands of angels (under Raziel and Hadraniel) appear around Raziel and Hadraniel.

RAZIEL
(announces)
Master has approved our technology for the arena.

HADRANIEL
(lifts a glass of wine)
Cheers! Our dreams come true…

Everybody joyfully exclaims.

{EXT. ROSE GARDEN, GABRIEL’S TERRITORY}

Hudiel plucks a rose and smells it.

PAIMON
(suddenly appears behind Hudiel)
What are you doing here?

HUDIEL
Hmm, it smells nice.

PAIMON
(smiles)
It’s you.

HUDIEL
Of course, it’s me, who were you expecting?

PAIMON
Haha! Don’t tell me you want to talk!

HUDIEL
Hmm, how did you know?

PAIMON
You’re in my home and I’m the second in command here.

HUDIEL
I know. So, can we talk?

PAIMON
Of course.

HUDIEL
Good.
(walks closer to Paimon and Shade of light covers them)

PAIMON
A private matter. What kind of private matter is this?

HUDIEL
The kind we will discuss now.
(Paimon nods)
Tell me, how many members of your kingdom have seen it?

PAIMON
Seen what?

HUDIEL
Don’t try to pretend. Your clan doesn’t lie.

PAIMON
Almost all of them.

HUDIEL
Not almost but all of them. What about the Territory?

PAIMON
Maybe few or all as well.

HUDIEL
All Territories have seen it. So don’t try to pretend.

PAIMON
Are you saying that the Archs know about it?

HUDIEL
(nods)
Yes.

PAIMON
Did they send you?

HUDIEL
I came on my own.

PAIMON
Tell me, don’t you like what you saw?

HUDIEL
Don’t tell me you do.

PAIMON
Haha! Well, I do. But it’s normal to like anything. Hope you know that.

HUDIEL
The Archs are afraid to talk with the ones whose minds have been turned. I need your help. Tell all your people that those things aren’t real. It’s a cover.

PAIMON
Those people are free, Hudiel, they are expressing themselves before the Most High without been judged.

HUDIEL
Are you kind of suggesting that the best life could be elsewhere?

PAIMON
That’s what those people are thinking.

HUDIEL
Hmm, I see! This is really a big problem. An attempt to convince one can lead to war.

PAIMON
War?

HUDIEL
Yes, war.

PAIMON
Then we better warn them before it’s too late.
(keeps a mean face)
But, Hudiel, the last war helped Satan and his people to have the life our people wish to live now. Our warning may be invalid and maybe result to the unexpected.

HUDIEL
Force them then.

PAIMON
Believe me, I would but my nature is not the type that force will against wills.

HUDIEL
So, you’re just going to let them go like that?

PAIMON
No, I will let them follow their will.

HUDIEL
How will that help us?

PAIMON
How is silence doing us any good?

HUDIEL
Using question to answer question won’t help us in this matter.

PAIMON
Questions are used for questions with unexplained obvious answers.

HUDIEL
Don’t tell me you’re part of this.

PAIMON
Let us wait till the end, Hudiel.

HUDIEL
End of what?

PAIMON
All the drives for Olam-Chuphshah.

HUDIEL
You talk to me like I’m a novice.

PAIMON
That’s because you ask questions like one.

HUDIEL
(smiles)
Or because you reason like one.

PAIMON
Hudiel, the Elders and the Archs know about it but they keep quiet over it if it was a very bad idea they would do something. Before Satan fell, they kept quiet as well and now see; Satan and his people are enjoying before Father’s eyes and He keeps quiet as well, doesn’t that tell you that they may be on the right path?

HUDIEL
Hmm…

PAIMON
Yes, think about it, man.
(Shade of light goes off and he walks away)

Hudiel wonders within himself for a while and gradually disappears.
