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

{INT. HUDIEL‘S PALACE, MICHAEL‘S TERRITORY}

Michael and Hudiel are playing chess. There is no Shade of light around them. Getting to Michael’s turn to play, he hears a deep bass sound in his ears. Hudiel looks at him with a wondering face. Suddenly, scales cover Hudiel’s eyes. The hall glows and light flows through Michael’s veins.

MICHAEL
(groans)
Arrrrh!

Hudiel’s body stiffens. This incident affects all the clan members of Michael, everywhere (Michael’s Territory only) become stiff. Immediately Shafat and Gabriel appear before Michael. Shade of light covers the three of them (Shafat, Gabriel and Michael).

SHAFAT
Peace be still.

MICHAEL
(pains subside)
My lord, what is happening?

SHAFAT
Shamayim is under attack and you are here playing chess.

MICHAEL
Who is behind this attack?

GABRIEL
Satan.

MICHAEL
The usual one. But he’s in Tehom right?

GABRIEL
He’s cut himself loose.

MICHAEL
(faces Shafat)
How? Is that possible?

SHAFAT
Whatever, I don’t know but he did it.

GABRIEL
He’ll be back.

SHAFAT
Yes, he’ll be back. We want you to secure Shahar until we figure out a way to trap him again.

MICHAEL
I can just go straight down to Olam-Chuphshah and arrest him, he’s no match to me.

SHAFAT
We can’t risk that.

MICHAEL
Why not?

GABRIEL
He’s no longer the Lucifer or the weak Satan you knew, Michael.

MICHAEL
That’s why he was able to escape the grip of Tehom?

SHAFAT
Exactly.

MICHAEL
I’m not afraid of anyone or anything,
(to Shafat)
are you?

SHAFAT
(smiles)
The Most High has declared Satan as his enemy unless he changes from his evil acts, which of course you know what that means. However, he’s not very easy to destroy with the Power he stole. So, we’re all under attack and we need all hands on deck. If you go down to him, he may trick you there and Shamayim will be at a very high risk. He is coming but we don’t know how. Nevertheless, our eyes are on him. Stay at Shahar first. Ok?

MICHAEL
Okay.
(Gabriel looks into his eyes and nods)
Shade of light goes off. Shafat and Gabriel disappear. Immediately, everywhere (in Michael’s Territory only) stay normal as it was.

HUDIEL
(looks at Michael and the chess board with a wondering face)
Come on, how long would it take you to move something?

MICHAEL
(stands and walks towards the door)
Come on, we’ve got things to do.

HUDIEL
(looks at Michael amazingly)
Seriously? Come on, don’t tell me I’ll win you again as I always do.

MICHAEL
Haha! You should be lucky I stood, I’ve given you the only chance to have a draw with me. Come on, Hudiel!
(Hudiel stands and follows him.)

{INT. SATAN’S PALACE, PLANET OUKHAH}

All Kings and Queens (including the newly fallen ones) are sitting on tiered seats.

//The palace has extended itself so large that it contains all the Kings and Queens in the universe.//

There is a pulpit at the centre of the palace. On the pulpit, Satan is sitting on his throne while his cabinet is sitting on their small thrones (all facing the Kings and Queens). Shade of light is covering the palace. Paimon and Eligos stand in front of Satan and his Cabinet.

ELIGOS
My lord, today …

SATAN
(interrupts)
Let Paimon speak.
(Eligos nods)

PAIMON
My lord, today we pledge our loyalty to you. Under your command shall we operate.
(together with Eligos they bow)

SATAN
Good… now, to the business of the day. The Elders have been watching at us and know what we do. We are completely going to go offline from Shamayim. That’s why we lost that battle. I am highly raged at them. The Most High has declared me an enemy of life. But believe me; I am not, he has not been able to lead us well. He destroyed his beauty the day he made the Elders, he has sided with the Elders. Which, of course, that means we’re on our own, so, we are going to be our gods.
(Everybody applauds Satan.)
The light shining on the walls of this universe is a connection to him, he has eyes on us. We have to blind it, and we have to do it now!

{EXT. SHAHAR}

Metatron, Jophiel, Gabriel and Michael are standing before the gate. Michael walks to the gate and touches it.

METATRON
It can never be broken by anyone.

MICHAEL
But it was opened by an outsider.

JOPHIEL
He used us to open it. Since we were made the key of the gate by him, he used that on us.

MICHAEL
(to Gabriel)
Don’t tell me he knew about this the day he named them.

GABRIEL
I alerted but none of you was with me.

MICHAEL
You are truly the Truth, Gabriel.
(Metatron and Jophiel glance at each other.)

GABRIEL
Hmm.

MICHAEL
(to Metatron and Jophiel)
I have never doubted him and I don’t mean that they’ve lied before so stop being surprised.

THREE DAYS LATER

{INT. CONCERT HALL, MIZBEACH-HALAL}

The clans of Selaphiel are playing a Concerto. Muriel (a female angel from the clan of Selaphiel) is playing the big Pipe Organ of Shamayim.

//The platform had changed to a concert hall and due to Barachiel‘s technology, everybody (that is not on stage) appears to be in the concert hall with the players (but as audience).//

{HALL, MELTSAR}

The Elders are watching at the clan of Selaphiel performing music in the concert hall of Mizbeach-Halal through a screen before them.

{SPACE, OLAM-CHUPHSHAH}

At the same hour of worship at Shamayim, all the fallen angels (numerous in number) gather in space (Olam-Chuphshah). Satan stands above them.

SATAN
(yells)
Are you ready?

ALL ANGELS
Yes!!!

SATAN
I want to tell you one terrible secret of the Most High, which you all don’t know. He has a son, but he’s not living like he’s supposed to. The Most High wants to bring him back. Do you know what! When his son comes, his father will give him “The Power of Will”, that means, none of us except the Elders will have a freedom of ‘Will’. All our wills will be tied to one person. Do you know what! We disagree!!

ALL ANGELS
Yes!!!

SATAN
And we cannot be treated like slaves in our rightful place, the father has betrayed us and we must not keep silent because we are not fools!

ALL ANGELS
Yes!!!

SATAN
Therefore, we are taking the war to him. He declared us his enemies and we will act like one today.

ALL ANGELS
Yes!!!

SATAN
But in order for this to work, we must be together and for a moment, we shall have one voice. You will let me speak through you for this to work properly. We are more than enough for this to work. Believe me, we shall all be like The Most High in the future if we do this!

ALL ANGEL
Yes!!!

A staff having the head of a serpent appears in the left hand of Satan. The crown on his head (unseen) begins to glow. All the head of the angels starts to glow.

SATAN
I will ascend into Ab-Panim,

ALL ANGELS
(heads glow)
Amen!

SATAN
I will exalt my throne above all Living,

ALL ANGELS
(heads glow more for the second time)
Amen!

SATAN
I will sit above the Elders,

ALL ANGELS
(heads glow more for the third time)
Amen!

SATAN
And I will be like the Most High!
(The place thunders.)
Hahaha!
(through the mind to all the angels)
Let me into your minds now.

ALL ANGELS
(through the mind)
Come in, Lord.

Satan turns into a red dragon, the staff in his hand also becomes bigger in size. A lightning bolt comes from the belly of the dragon and connects all the angels and stars in the universe together with him (Satan; the dragon). The letter “666 (six hundred and sixty-six)” signifying his origin appears on the heads of all the Angels including the Red Dragon (Satan). But the letter does not appear on the stars.

SATAN & ALL ANGELS
(in unison //Satan speaks through all the Angels//)
In one language and in unity we speak with one voice,
(their bodies glow)
In one language and in unity we destroy the Most High,
(their bodies glow more)
In one language and in unity we fall Ahavah,
(their bodies glow more)
In one language and in unity we make Shamayim our footstool,
(their bodies glow more and an arrow of light comes out of each of the stars)
In one language and in unity we strike down The Most High!

The universe thunders heavily. The Arrows of light from the stars join and form a very massive arrow. All their (Dragon and all the Angels’) bodies emit lightning bolts, which collide with the crown on Satan’s (Dragon’s) head and produce a fierce light, which moves to the bottom of the Arrow of light and fires it out of the universe.

{AB-OLAM}

Ahavah is sitting on his throne. Suddenly the Arrow of light approaches him (unnoticed). But immediately, his Seven bright Armours appear/stand before the arrow of light and they collide and explode with a great sound of thunder.

{NIGHT}

Then everywhere becomes dark.

{SPACE, OLAM-CHUPHSHAH }

The red dragon and all the angels freeze, all the stars goes off.

{MIZBEACH-HALAL, SHAMAYIM}

All the Archs and angels freeze.

{INT. HALL, MELTSAR}

All the Elders freeze.

{EXT. GIBBOR}

The twelve Cherubs kneel and their bodies illuminate a faded yellow light (but they are not immobilized). They shake their heads in meditation.

{QADOSH-AMMUD}

The Seraphs kneel, all their feathers are out, and their bodies (including their feathers) illuminate a faded white light (but they are not immobilized). They shake their heads in meditation.

{AB-OLAM}

The throne is very dark. Suddenly, the seven Armours appear and together with the throne,

{DAY}

They become bright and shines light again. The throne is empty; Ahavah has gone. Immediately, the Seven Armours, which is the Spirit of Ahavah, turns into the image of Ahavah and sits on the throne of Ahavah.

AHAVAH’S SPIRIT
(without using his mouth)
I am dead for the second time, hmm… what have I done to deserve this?

//Ahavah’s Spirit cannot speak with his mouth. However, the Spirit of Ahavah turns into a transparent image of Ahavah and begins to act on his behalf.//

As Ahavah’s Spirit revives the light, everything goes back to normal as they were, except Olam-Chuphshah which all its stars become a black-hole and remain that way (dark). Olam-Chuphshah stops spinning but continues to revolve around Shahar with other universes as it used to be. Planets in Olam-Chuphshah also continue to revolve around their black holes (former stars) without spinning.

The light of Ahavah no longer shines on the walls of Olam-Chuphshah universe and darkness surrounds it. Apart from Olam-Chuphshah, every other thing and places return back as they were.

However, Satan and the entire angels that were in Olam-Chuphshah recover themselves. But they now live in complete darkness because Olam-Chuphshah is now caused with darkness.

The Elders, Seraphs, Cherubs, Archangels and Angels also recover themselves.
