{INT. HALL, MELTSAR – DAY}
Shafat raises his two hands. A green light, which is the Shade-of-light, covers the whole of the hall and Meltsar.

The Elders gaze at Shafat while sitting on their thrones in a triangular form, around a glowing triangular table. They wear raiment like Kings, which changes in colour after several minutes, and three persons wear the same colour.

Shafat walks towards the table in-between the Elders and the table disappears.

SHAFAT

(stands in their midst)
We have to name ourselves. Father gave us the Will to decide for ourselves. On same ground, I stand. Now, we will start from my right.
(looks at an Elder on his right)

TUB

(stands)
I am TUB.
(sits)

CHESED

(stands)
Just call me CHESED.
(sits)

SHALOM

(stands)
SHALOM.
(sits)

YAKACH is very tall, though he is sitting down; he is equal to the height of Shafat; standing.

YAKACH

Um, do I need to stand?

The Elders laugh quietly.

SHAFAT

The choice is yours.

YAKACH

(stands)
Well, huh,
(looks at Tub, Chesed, and Shalom)
Well, uh, they stood. I am Yakach.
(sits)

SHAFAT

(nods)
Hmm… I see!

SIMCHAH

(stands)
I am SIMCHAH.
(sits)

ANAH is bald.

ANAH

(stands and smiles)
I am Anah.
(sits)

YASHAR

(stands quickly)
YASHAR.
(sits quickly)

SHAFAT

(looks at Yashar)
Haha!

YASHAR

O oh! Was that funny?

All the Elders laugh very shortly. TAHOR stands, he looks up, touches his chest with his right hand, and open wide his two hands.

SHAFAT

Why are you doing that?

TAHOR

Because I am Tahor.

Tahor sits. Tub and Chesed glance at each other and smile. Yakach winks at Tahor and nods.

TIQVAH

(stands, folds his hands and looks at Shafat)
TIQVAH.
(Sits)

Shafat smiles.

HUPOMONE

(stands)
You will all call me; HUPOMONE.
(sits)

ALL THE ELDERS

(in unison)
Hupomone!

Hupomone sighs and nods. KOACH is very fat, hefty, and strong, he stands and a bright light shines on his face.

KOACH

(points at his face)
You see. I am Koach; you will always feel me.
(sits)

YAKACH

Sounds like we’re at war.

KOACH

Maybe someday we will.

Three flashes of light spark outside the hall.

QARA

(stands)
QARA.
(sits)

HADAR

(stands)
I am HADAR.
(Sits)

BERAKAH

(stands)
I am BERAKAH.
(sits)

AMATS

(stands and touches his head. Shafat dims his eyes and looks at him closely)
I am AMATS.

SHAFAT

(widens his eyes a little)
Oh!

AMATS

(to Shafat)
What were you thinking?

SHAFAT

Never mind.

Amats winks at Yakach and sits. Yakach smiles.

CHEN

(stands)
I am CHEN.
(sits)

OSHER

(stands and starts smiling)
I am OSHER.
(sits)

Yakach looks at Shafat with a wondering look on his face.

SHAFAT

Yakach!

YAKACH

(nods)
O Sorry!

AMAN

(stands)
Mere looking at me, you should know that I am AMAN.

All the Elders looks at Aman with a surprised look on their faces.

YAKACH

I didn’t see anything on your face.
(faces Shafat)
Did you?

SHAFAT

He is Aman.

Aman nods, breaths heavily, exhales and sits.

EMUNAH

(stands)
I am EMUNAH.
(sits)

TIPHARAH is very handsome.

TIPHARAH

(stands and waves his hair with his right hand)
I am Tipharah.

SHAFAT

Of course.

AMATS

We all see that.

YAKACH

(nods)
Hmm…

Tipharah smiles and sits.

TSALACH

(stands)
I am TSALACH.
(sits)

GADOL is the second tallest man after Yakach.

GADOL

(stands)
Call me Gadol.

YAKACH

Yeah, you got it right.

Gadol smiles and sits. GEBURAH is the shortest among the Elders and he is strong and slightly fat.

GEBURAH

(stands)
I am Geburah.

Yakach slightly opens his mouth to speak. Shafat quickly points at him.

SHAFAT

Shhhhh!

Geburah sits.

SHAFAT

(smiles)
Father has given us happiness and laughter forever. It’s time for us to remove the Shade-of-light and present our names to him.

All the Elders raise their two hands. Their hands emit a green light and the Shade-of-light disappears from the whole of Meltsar. Suddenly, a door appears before Shafat.

SHAFAT

ROSH-SERAPH; son of THE MOST HIGH. Come forth to the Elders through THE LADDER WAY.

All the Elders stand up. A very bright light shines out of the door. Then all the Elders cover their faces with one of their hands except Shafat who looks in another direction. ROSH-SERAPH steps out of the door. There is fire all over his body. The fire diminishes gradually and goes off.

Then the Elders look at Rosh-Seraph astoundingly.

Rosh-Seraph is a very tall, hefty, and handsome young man with a very smooth pure-white skin (like the body of the Elders), his skin slightly glows naturally. His cloth glows, gold and silver hang on it.

SHAFAT

ROSH-SERAPHIM; you are welcome to the council of Elders.

ROSH-SERAPH

Thank you, Shafat!

SHAFAT

(stretches his two hands before Rosh-Seraph. Then all the Elders stretch their hands toward him)
Rosh-Seraph, we give you our names, present it before Father that we have named ourselves.

A blue light comes out of the head of all the Elders and moves into the hands of Shafat.

Shafat points the light towards Rosh-Seraph. The light moves towards the head of Rosh-Seraph. Rosh-Seraph inhales the blue light into his nostrils. Immediately, everywhere shakes; lightning and thunder occur in the hall.

The names of each of the Elders including Shafat appear on their garments; at their right chests. Then a door appears.

Rosh-Seraph’s body starts to become fiery. The Elders cover their faces with one of their hands, Shafat looks in another direction. Rosh-Seraph enters the door, and the door disappears.
