{EXT. SHAHAR – DAY}

Shafat is walking with Gabriel and Michael.

SHAFAT
The council have decided to exclude some creatures from life on earth.

GABRIEL
Can humans be able to survive alone?

SHAFAT
I said, some creatures. Not all of them, Gabriel. We want all the creatures of the Elders on earth to go into extinction.

MICHAEL
Destruction! When will this end?

SHAFAT
It will end when the Most High’s Son comes.

GABRIEL
(to Michael)
Are you worried that you’re the only person given the task of destruction?

SHAFAT
(surprised)
What?

MICHAEL
I never said that.

SHAFAT
(looks at Michael)
What? Do you doubt Gabriel?

GABRIEL
(laughs)
Don’t mind Michael, he’s comfortable with his duties.

MICHAEL
(to Shafat)
Gabriel jokes sometimes.
(smiles)

GABRIEL
(smiles)
A nice one, but that wasn’t a joke. I’m no joke teller.

SHAFAT
Well, the matter of earth is no longer the problem of one clan or dynasty.

GABRIEL
Meaning?

SHAFAT
We shall all participate in the preparation of the way of the Most High’s Son.

MICHAEL
Okay?

SHAFAT
By that I mean, we shall all administer to humans as long as they live. We will become the connection between them and the Most High.

GABRIEL
The Most High?

SHAFAT
Okay, the Elders. Since that’s what you want to hear. So, Michael.

MICHAEL
Yes?

SHAFAT
The work of destruction is now yours and Raguel’s. Plan your attacks with him.

MICHAEL
Raguel?

GABRIEL
(to Michael)
You know, since Raguel developed a desperate attitude for vengeance, his purpose has been aligned with destruction.

MICHAEL
I got it, but Olam-Chuphshah is too small to combine two Archs.

SHAFAT
You started it, Michael. It’s your fault.

MICHAEL
What?

GABRIEL
You shouldn’t have let Raguel accompany you to Olam-Chuphshah the day he wanted vengeance.

MICHAEL
(to Gabriel)
But you approved it.

SHAFAT
No! you were in charge, Michael.

MICHAEL
Wow!

SHAFAT
So, go destroy those creatures before Satan realizes himself and possesses them to control humans again.

MICHAEL
(nods)
I will.
(glances at Gabriel)
But without Raguel.

RAGUEL
(appears behind Michael)
Let’s go! You’re wasting my time.
(spins his sword)

MICHAEL
What?
(looks around)
How did you…

RAGUEL
(interrupts)
Put the Shade of light around you next time!

MICHAEL
Killing those creatures is a little task for me. I don’t need your help, Raguel.

RAGUEL
You do, Michael. Don’t worry, you’ll see.
(Shafat and Gabriel laugh loudly.)

{INT. SATAN’S PALACE, OUKHAH – DAY}

Satan is looking through the window.

ABYZOU
(walks to Satan)
What should we do to humans on earth?

SATAN
Shut up! Just allow me to think.

ABYZOU
I’m sorry, my lord.

SATAN
This has happened before, the Elders triggered time but I wasn’t affected due to the powers in my possession.

ABYZOU
Time? Sorry, but what are you talking about?

SATAN
It’s a long story, Abyzou. Never mind!

{EXT. MOUNTAINTOP, EARTH – NIGHT}

Michael and Raguel are looking down on earth from the top of a mountain.

Michael points his right hand in the sky and the sky thunders.

{FOREST/ROCKY ZONES}

Dinosaurs and all the big and weird creatures on earth start running helter-skelter.

{MOUNTAINTOP}

RAGUEL
Innocent creatures.
(a sword appears in his hand)

MICHAEL
You’re weak, Raguel. Your strength is only against Satan if not the little Malphas. We probably don’t want Satan to lay hold of these creatures to do his bidding. Okay?

RAGUEL
So, now what.

MICHAEL
(smiles)
Don’t worry, you’ll see! Wait here let me check their integrity.
(disappears)

RAGUEL
Okay!
(to himself)
Integrity?
(looks down)
What?
(to himself)
He smiled ahead of this butchery, that’s strange. What’s up with him?

{FOREST}

MICHAEL
(appears under the Shade of light)
Sorry, Raguel, I don’t need you in this cheap slaughter.

Michael travels in the speed of light and slaughters all the dinosaurs and weird creatures that Satan and his men possessed in “The First World”.

{MOUNTAINTOP}

Michael appears in front of Raguel.

RAGUEL
So, what did you find out?

MICHAEL
Let’s go home.

RAGUEL
What?

MICHAEL
Look beneath you, there is nothing left to kill.

RAGUEL
(his eyes glow fiercely)
Wow! All the Elder’s creatures and giant animals are dead. You’re really a great fellow to trust.

MICHAEL
I told you, I don’t need you in this little task.

RAGUEL
Yeah, I said, I trust you!
(nods)
You kept to your word.

MICHAEL
Good. Let’s go!

Suddenly, a space rock (asteroid) clashes unto earth at the very spot where the creatures domiciled.

The sound cause quakes and the force from it burn lands and destroy any nearby creatures.

RAGUEL
(smiles)
Wow!

MICHAEL
What was that?

RAGUEL
Well, I’m trying to cover your track. But I didn’t know it was going to reach up to that extent.

MICHAEL
What?

RAGUEL
Yeah, we were both supposed to have a hand in this.

MICHAEL
O no! You’ve destroyed a land for human habitation.

RAGUEL
Come on! Is that a problem for you?

MICHAEL
(sighs)
Let’s go now!

Michael and Raguel disappear.
