{EXT. ROCKY AREA, MELTSAR}

SHAFAT
(walks and the Elders follow him, including Rosh-Seraph. Shade of light is covering them)
Right in the midst of troubles and confusion, we never observed what was going on around us.
(they walk towards a Wall of scroll)
You see that?

YAKACH
What is this?

SHAFAT
I’m afraid, I don’t have an answer.

ROSH-SERAPH
It must be the property of the Most High.
(they approach the wall and stop walking)

SHAFAT
Right! It was built by Holy hands.

ROSH-SERAPH
This is what I see in my visions whenever I am before the Most High.

YAKACH
He sent this to us.

CHEN
Something could be wrong somewhere, this is a tool for writing.

ROSH-SERAPH
No, it is a tool for displaying spoken words.

CHEN
What’s the difference?

SHAFAT
I sensed it a while ago but I never knew what it is.

ROSH-SERAPH
(eyes glow)
The Most High shall write to you in due time.
(eyes become normal)

SHAFAT
Write to us?

YAKACH
Well, that’s very nice.

QARA
Are we evolving?

KOACH
It seems like.

SHAFAT
(walks to it, stretches his hands to touch it and his hands go through the Wall of Scroll without touching it)
Elders! This is the future.

YAKACH
We need to figure out why The Most High is changing the way he relates with us. I mean, have we done something wrong?
(they all look sad including Rosh-Seraph)

ROSH-SERAPH
(in the mind)
Could this be my fault?

SHAFAT
I believe everything is for a purpose. Let us look forward to it.

{EXT. TEHOM}

Satan is falling endlessly.

SATAN
(eyes sparkle)
Malphas!

{ROCKY GROUND, PLANET PHANTOGUS}

Paimon and Eligos push out a rock from above them.

//They had buried themselves under the rock.//

The ground of the planet is sinking gradually.

ELIGOS
(to Paimon)
You caused this. We should have joined them, at least they would have protected us.

PAIMON
Against the Michaels? Are you out of your mind?

ELIGOS
(looks at a shiny stone on the ground)
Pick that for me.

PAIMON
Damn you. Seem like you’ve forgotten what I am.

ELIGOS
I am your king now.

PAIMON
(travels in the speed of light and buries Eligos’ head in the ground)
You must be stupid.
(leaves Eligos)

ELIGOS
(gently comes out of the ground)
I can’t fight with you. A real king doesn’t look for trouble.

PAIMON
Don’t ever tempt me again.

ELIGOS
We need to go and make peace with this Satan.

PAIMON
I won’t give him my full loyalty, under pretence I’ll pledge my loyalty.

ELIGOS
He’s not a fool.

PAIMON
Neither am I.

ELIGOS
Okay, let us revive this planet and my angels before it sinks to the core.

PAIMON
Do it alone.

ELIGOS
You know I can’t do it alone.

PAIMON
(stands upright)
Stop acting weird and I’ll do it alone.

Suddenly, a yellow light shines on the ground and all the angels that were pinned down by spears recover themselves, then the spears all disappear, the sinking ground stops and stays normal.

ELIGOS
Whoa! That fast? Thank you…

PAIMON
That wasn’t me.

ELIGOS
What?
(sees thousands of masked angels coming towards Paimon and him)
Who are those?

PAIMON
That’s Abyzou and her angels.
(Abyzou and the masked angels approach and stop in front of Eligos and him)

ABYZOU
(to the masked angels)
Go! We’re done.
(all the masked angels disappear)
Good.
(to Paimon and Eligos)
We came to your rescue.

PAIMON
Don’t you see it’s over? Well, I think you came a little bit late.

{UNDERWATER, PLANET OUKHAH}

Beleth, Malphas and Eisheth are standing before Balam, Solas, Kokabiel, Agiel, Amdusias, Haagenti, Bathym, Zepar and Alastor (//Kings of the newly fallen angels//).

MALPHAS
(waves his hand and Shade of light covers them)
The reason I summoned you here is that we the Cabinets ran into a memory loss. We’re trying to recall the name of the prison which the Most High created, can any of you help us out?

AGIEL
Prison?

AMDUSIAS
What prison?

MALPHAS
What do you mean what prison?

EISHETH
Seems like we’re not the only ones.

KOKABIEL
I can’t remember any prison.

MALPHAS
You’re all useless to me. Please go!
(Shade of light goes off and all the newly fallen Kings disappear)

BELETH
(waves his hand and Shade of light covers the three of them)
I think this happened during the war.

EISHETH
But I didn’t go to war with, you guys, how come I’m part of it?

BELETH
Before the war, we were with our memories.

EISHETH
What if they spelt this universe?

MALPHAS
With the light of the Most High still shining on it, no one can cast a forgetting spell on us; it’s Olam-Chuphshah.

EISHETH
(giggles)
Well, they just did.

MALPHAS
Let us not come to conclusions yet, Abyzou is yet to give us feedback from the Gabriels.

{ROCKY GROUND, PLANET PHANTOGUS}

ABYZOU
The war was a terrible one.

ELIGOS
Thank you for saving my planet, I…

PAIMON
(interrupts)
Wait,
(to Abyzou)
what do you mean the war was a terrible one?

ABYZOU
We lost the battle.

PAIMON
Tell Satan we’re sorry and we’ll come to see him.

ELIGOS
Yes, we’re truly sorry for that. Tell him.

ABYZOU
Yes, I will. Can you tell me the name of Shamayim’s prison?

PAIMON
You mean Tehom?

ABYZOU
(to Eligos)
Tehom? Is that what it’s called?

ELIGOS
Tehom is the Elder’s prison created by the Most High.

ABYZOU
Our master has decided to cast every law defaulters to Tehom, thank goodness you mentioned it yourself. So,

ELIGOS
(interrupts)
We’re very sorry. Can we come with you to see him now?

ABYZOU
No! You must wait for him to request your attention. Maybe he’ll consider your apology when I tell him. Okay bye!
(flies in the speed of light into the sky and disappears)

PAIMON
(waves his hand and Shade of light covers them)
These people are liars. I don’t trust them anymore.

ELIGOS
Was there any time you trusted them? By the way, what did you see about them?

PAIMON
There is something they are hiding. But I couldn’t figure it out.

ELIGOS
That’s a problem and we need to know what they are hiding and why.

PAIMON
That’s your problem, not mine.

ELIGOS
What?

PAIMON
(giggles)
Are you not a king?

ELIGOS
(snubs)
We have to work with them and have a feeling of belonging. Staying on our own will solve nothing.

PAIMON
Solve nothing like what?

ELIGOS
O my goodness! Didn’t you see what just happened?

PAIMON
Oh! Michaels…

{SPACE, OLAM-CHUPHSHAH}

Azazel and Agrat are standing in space above planet Phantogus. Shade of light is covering them. Abyzou appears in front of them and Shade of light goes off from around Azazel and Agrat and covers the three of them (Abyzou, Agrat and Azazel).

ABYZOU
Tehom, Tehom, Tehom, don’t forget that’s the place.

AZAZEL
You mean the prison?

ABYZOU
Yes! Tehom.

AGRAT
Okay Tehom, let’s go!
(they start flying away)

ABYZOU
(smiles)
They’re all ours now.

AZAZEL
Don’t rejoice yet, they have not sworn their loyalty to us.

AGRAT
O, don’t act like a novice, Azazel, they are truth tellers. They will!

ABYZOU
They feel remorse for not joining us.

AZAZEL
It was terrible, Eisheth really dealt with them.

They all laugh as they fly away.

{HUDIEL’S PALACE VERANDA, MICHAEL’S TERRITORY}

Michael, Chamuel, Raguel and Gabriel are eating fruits and drinking wine around a golden table. Shade of light is covering them.

MICHAEL
He nearly got us but I won’t let him try that next time. That was an insult to this Territory.

CHAMUEL
What are saying?

MICHAEL
I should have been there with the Elders.

GABRIEL
(belches)
Be grateful that you weren’t there.

MICHAEL
Why?

GABRIEL
The Elders nearly gave up their power in that battle.

RAGUEL
Come on, Gabriel, why underestimate Michael?
(Michael smiles)
Wait…
(to Michael)
Was that for real?
(Michael keeps a mean face)
Gabriel, Chamuel and Raguel laugh.

CHAMUEL
(to Michael)
You’ve been tricked.
(they all laugh except Michael)
I told them you smiled at me during the war and they sort of didn’t believe me.

MICHAEL
Is that making me weak?

RAGUEL
Weak?

MICHAEL
Maybe that’s why the Elders thought of facing him alone without me.

GABRIEL
No, Michael! It makes you stronger because it was after you smiled that Satan became powerless.
(giggles)

MICHAEL
(to Gabriel)
I wouldn’t believe someone else
(hisses)
but because it came from you.

GABRIEL
Hey, you think I’m always mean and serious?
(to Chamuel)
Did he smile before the battle or after the battle?

CHAMUEL
Before the battle!

GABRIEL
(to Michael)
You see!
(they all laugh excluding Michael)

MICHAEL
Come on, are you keeping an eye on me now?

They all laugh loudly including Michael.

{EXT. TEHOM}

Satan is falling endlessly.

SATAN
(eyes glow steadily after a while of blinking)
Come on!

{INT. SATAN’S PALACE, PLANET OUKHAH}

Abyzou, Azazel, Agrat, Malphas, Eisheth and Beleth are sitting around a three-sided pyramid-like table.

The three-sided pyramid-like table

AGRAT
(stands and walks closer to Satan’s throne)
I don’t think that’s right.

ABYZOU
Come on, if we don’t make them think that master is here with us they may revolt and of course, you know what that means.

AZAZEL
You’re right.
(Agrat is very close to Satan’s throne that her hands get attracted to it)

{EXT. TEHOM}

SATAN
(breaths)
Yes! Closer, closer.

{INT. SATAN’S PALACE, PLANET OUKHAH}

ABYZOU
Agrat? What are you doing?

Everybody looks at Agrat. Agrat touches Satan’s throne. Her eyes glow and immediately, others kneel and bow their heads before Agrat.

//Satan possesses her//

{EXT. TEHOM}

SATAN
(eyes glow steadily)
Yes! My dear cabinets.

{INT. SATAN’S PALACE, PLANET OUKHAH}

AGRAT
(Satan speaks through her)
Gather kings, queens, princes, princesses, presidents, governors and unit leaders from our origin

{EXT. TEHOM}

SATAN
Under the biggest star in Olam-Chuphshah, stay in the symbol of power, make sure you are six hundred and sixty-six in number, and then summon me and I will be free from this place. Do it right now!

{INT. SATAN’S PALACE, PLANET OUKHAH}

AGRAT
Don’t waste any more time.
(eyes become normal)

Immediately, the whole place changes to a massive star.

{EXT. SPACE, OLAM-CHUPHSHAH}

Kings, Presidents, Queens, Princes, Princesses, Governors and Unit leaders (all from Satan’s clan) including the cabinets stand under the star, in the shape of a pyramid.

Angels under the massive star
image

 

All their eyes glow red and they all speak together.

ANGELS
(in unison)
Biggest star of Olam-Chuphshah, the seed of Boqer, the mother of all stars, the Beloveth of the Most High, bring forth Satan who was Lucifer! Bring forth Satan who was Lucifer! Bring forth Satan who was Lucifer!…
(continuously)

{TEHOM}

Satan suddenly disappears.

{ROCKY AREA, MELTSAR}

The Elders are still standing before the Wall of Scroll.

SHAFAT
What if it …
(suddenly a great noise sounds in the ears of all the Elders except Rosh-Seraph)

ROSH-SERAPH
(Immediately, his body turns into flames)
No!
(he runs in the speed of light in circles around the 24 Elders. Then the noise stops sounding in the ears of the Elders and he stops running around them.)

SHAFAT
(panting)
He’s gone.

GADOL
He broke the spell?

HADAR
He figured a way out because we were distracted.

ROSH-SERAPH
This is war.

SHAFAT
A heavy one.

YAKACH
We have to prepare!

{SPACE, OLAM-CHUPHSHAH}

A big eye appears above the angels standing in the shape of a pyramid under the massive star. Then the eye turns into Satan.

ABYZOU
(exclaims)
The Lord is back!

All the angels shout and rejoice. The Cabinets surround Satan.

SATAN
(to his Cabinets)
A new war has begun. Send a message to all the Kings and Queens that I want to see them in my palace.

MALPHAS
We should celebrate your return first.

SATAN
No celebrations. Go now!
