THE LASTING SEVEN

SETTING:

The story begins with the seven brothers seated at the grand table, inside their modern mansion. No one is talking, there is a high level of uneasiness and discomfort. ANGÊL is slowly glancing at each brother, trying to predict their move. There are one of the rare Portuguese settlers of the 1800’s. Their dark caramel skin colour does not shy away from their obvious beauty. They look dreamy, almost as if they are not from this world. Their mere existence shatter hearts and make women leave their husbands and children. They draw you in by just looking at you, their scent is mesmerizing, their stature is so perfect, that even from behind you can fall in love:

CHARACTERS:

Cael ~ the eldest most childish of the seven brothers (Green Sebae)
Angêl ~ the most pristine and gentleman type of the seven brothers (Half cloudy White and half Grey Sebae)
Castiel ~ the most gruesome and no-nonsense taking brother. (Charcoal Black Sebae)
Favian ~ one of the sweetest brethren of the seven (Light Yellow and Brown Sebae)
Uriel ~ one of the most handsome and charming brethren of the seven. (White Sebae)
Yael ~ one of the most playful, and observant of the brothers. (Red, Black, Brown Sebae)
Mikhael ~ one of the most mysterious brethren of the seven. (Grey Sebae)


Mankgele/Man-gele Adabelle ~ Descendant Kai, clan of African water Queen

EPISODE 1 / PILOT: ‘Did you?’

 

FAVIAN

You tasted her blood!?

CAEL

(fervently)

Only a little.

(connivingly smiling)

ANGÊL

Cael!

(in a deep dark voice)

We agreed, that no one is to touch her.

YAEL

You tainted her. That is unforgivable.

CAEL

(faint laugh)

You boys must learn to calm down. All so serious.

MICAHEL

Where is her body?

CAEL

Somewhere!

 

–in a split-second Uriel stands up; fists ready and launching at Cael. All the brother’s hurdling in to stop the fight, but they are caught in-between knuckle breaking fists.

6 MONTHS BEFORE

JUMP CUT. THE VATENARY SCIENCE/FARM IN THE WOODS NEAR THE LAKE – NIGHT. Mankgele (also Man-gele) is walking down the lake path alone, headphones on; music blasting through her ears. She is singing swiftly, and her voice is captivating. On the tree watching her is Yael. He is slowly taking in the air, as if catching her scent and voice. He is swinging with one hand, but steady, his eyes changing colours of the rainbow tone. He slithers to another tree. Mankgele is startled and takes off her headphones. She turns to look around, her mood changes, she looks at the surrounding with no one in her sight:

MANKGELE

Who is there?

(silence)

I have training in jujitsu, and I am not afraid to use it.

(turns and startled)

Ahh!

 

–A pleasant sight of Yael. He is observing her, innocently looking at her from toe to head:

MANKGELE

Can I help you?

YAEL

What are you doing all alone in the woods?

(walking around her)

MANKGELE

(uneasy)

I come here to think and write!

(pursing her lips, sounding tough)

YAEL

It is dangerous for a woman to walk alone in the woods.

MANKGELE

This is a safe route, the local guide told me. What are you doing?

(realizing his odd behaviour)

YAEL

Would you like to die today?

MANKGELE

(silent)

YAEL

I asked you a question?

MANKGELE

No!

(tears starting to fill her eyes)

–Suddenly, a single drop falls from the sky and lands on Yael’s forehead, he halts, and wipes it and looks at it, and then her:

YAEL

It is going to rain soon,

–His mind goes into a trance; his eyes dilating and his pupil thinning starting to look like a snake:

ANGÊL {V.O}

Brother! Stop playing with our mere existence.

URIEL {V.O}

We are coming to your location, where are you exactly?

YAEL {V.O)

If you leave my mind, maybe I can show you where I am at.

CAEL {V.O}

I am aging! Finish her off

YAEL {V.O}

I can’t she seem to be unfazed by me. She is normal, no effect whatsoever.

CASTIEL {V.O}

What do you mean?

YAEL {V.O}

I believe she is a Nerian.

ANGÊL {V.O}

A what?

–Silence,

MIKHAEL {V.O}

We eradicated their kind 500 hundred years ago.

YAEL {V.O}

Well, I cannot stop hearing her voice in my head. Whispering… saying…

MIKHAEL

Brother leave now! Everybody retreat!

–Mankgele is confusingly starring at Yael, who has a lost look on his face. She cannot understand what is going on,

MANKGELE

Are you okay?

–He comes back and looks at her, she blinks, and he is gone.

 

EXT.THE MANSION – NIGHT. The seven brothers are seated around the table, YAEL looks more worried:

ANGÊL

How could she be a Nerian?

–Everyone looking at Yael.

YAEL

How am I supposed to know?

CASTIEL

She needs to die. We cannot have problems now.

(with a straight face)

YAEL

(standing up)

Nobody touches her!

CASTIEL

What do you think she will do when she finds out that we have eradicated her kind in the 1800’s. That their mere existence is a threat to our kind. The only kind we cannot coerce. The only kind that can permanently kill us

FAVIAN

I think we should observe her, before we take a decision, and Yael sit down.

–He sits down.

CAEL

Maybe play a little game?

CASTIEL

Cael! She is not some toy, and she could be dangerous, you cannot just play with her like some lion.

CAEL

(closing his eye, redeeming in the memory)

I killed one once, thinking I am something to play with. I make the rules, lions! Huh, think they are the king of the jungle.

URIEL

I think that Yael will be on duty watch. The Nerian.

YAEL

Why me

(pierce look at Uriel)

CAEL

If Yael is not up to the task, I can take over.

(smiling connivingly)

YAEL

If you dare

(fists clenched)

MIKHAEL

(smoothly)

Out of all you brothers, I can do a small favour. Seem like there are emotions involved

ANGÊL

Yael calm down! And Uriel is right we need to assess the situation, we do not know what her blood can do, and even her descendent line. Yael is out, Mikhael will go an observe the situation.

YAEL

No! Mikhael is unstable, we do not know what he will do. No!

CAEL

It looks like Yael is under her spell.

(laughing excitedly)

YAEL

(alarmed)

I am not! She is different. I cannot explain it.

FAVIAN

Are you in love with her brother?

–Immediately Mikhael and Castiel are on Yael’s side, shoulder to shoulder. He stares at them and magically shape-shifts into a large multi-colour (Red, Black, Brown) Sebae (African Python) and in quick movements he is out of their sight, they try to catch him, the table is turned everyone is up on their feet trying and scuffling to catch Yael, ANGÊL  quickly takes out his saliva, in a swiftly manner and throws it, as it is in the air it grows and attaches on Yael. Who is left motionless, panting and shifting back human.

EXT. VATENARY SCIENCE CAMPUS/FARM, GIRLS DOMITORRY – NIGHT. Mankgele slumps on her chair, and sighs. Her roommate looks over to her side, stands upfront to her, hands on her waist:

KUSHKIE

Where have you been?

(scolding her)

MANKGELE

I went to draw the birds,

KUSHKIE

This late? You shouldn’t be out this late on your own!

MANKGELE

Tell me something that I do not know.

(smiling to herself)

KUSHKIE

You think this is funny? If you are so obsessed with drawing, why not just study Art and leave this veterinary nonsense?

MANKGELE

It is peaceful here, and the farm is amazing, and quiet. I can hear myself think.

(still smiling)

KUSHKIE

Why are you smiling?

MANKGELE

I just had a weird encounter, or a dream, I don’t know…

With the most beautiful man ever!

KUSHKIE

Man?

(looking at her cynically)

MANKGELE

Well, a guy. He is-was a guy, a really hot guy. But my instinct tells me to stay away from him.

KUSHKIE

What is his name?

MANKGELE

Uhm!

KUSHKIE

Which dorm does he live in?

–Starring at her blankly,

KUSHKIE

You know nothing about this so-called beautiful guy. You should stop going into the woods. People disappears there

(shaking her head and leaving Mankgele to her thoughts)

–Mankgele smiles broadly, then her face changes to a sadder look, she looks out the window and the rain starts, waterlines swirling on her window.

FADE OUT:

INT. THE MANSION – MORNING. ANGÊL unlocks the door in the dungeon, and a heavy metal sound rings in the air. The sight of Yael as he hurdles up in the corner in a Sebae form. He is surrounded by azaleas, with big inedible fruits sprouting at the end:

YAEL

Hashita, sha! Slaar-shi-ya?

[coming to gloat brother?]

ANGÊL

Hashi! Laarsha, thyshia sho-ho

[I could never do that to my own blood]

–Turning human and remaining in the corner.

YAEL

Why are you here?

ANGÊL

Are you willing?

YAEL

To what?

ANGÊL

Renounce your love?

YAEL

I do not love her!

ANGÊL

Then you would not mind when she dies?

–Silence,

ANGÊL

She is a liability to our kind.

YAEL

She is innocent, she knows nothing about our kind. She is…

ANGÊL

She is the supreme of our kind, the very definition of why we shouldn’t exist!

YAEL

But she is still human, of some sort.

ANGÊL

They are not an exemption to our plan. Humans gives us immortality.

YAEL

But you now that is not the correct interpretation.

We are to feed on the tree of life, its fruits and bearing, for human we will be bearing, in our likeness we shall become, not forgetting where we come.

ANGÊL

I know the spell Yael.

YAEL

Let me out then.

ANGÊL

(ignoring his request)

Mikhael believes that you are under her spell. Since you are the one who heard her sing.

YAEL

Momentarily. But now I am sane as a rock. I want out of this room of punishment! I did nothing wrong

ANGÊL

Slashil Yael!

[calm down Yael]

–Falling silent and shifting back into the Sebae.

ANGÊL

Are you going to ignore me now?

–Silence, only hissing.

FADE OUT:

EXT. THE WOODS – MIDDAY. Mikhael is amidst the shrubs silently watching Mankgele, who is busy looking at the birds with binoculars, and then retreating to draw. She starts to sing as she draws, and Mikhael unwillingly shifts to human. Not knowing what to do he is staring at Mankgele, amidst the shrubs. Mankgele is surprised at the occurrence of a person:

MANKGELE

Hi,

(unsure)

MIKHAEL

Hello.

MANKGELE

Can I help you? Are you lost?

MIKHAEL

(thinking hard)

Yes. I am. Could you assist me with the route?

MANKGELE

Where do you come from?

MIKHAEL

Uhm, to the South of the woods,that’s where I am going

(getting shy)

MANKGELE

Let me show you the way,

(getting up and packing her things)

MIKHAEL

You do not have to…

MANKGELE

No! you are lost. I cannot just let you roam the woods alone, it will be dark soon, and you do not want to be lost in the woods all alone. And I do not mind.

(shrugging happily)

MIKHAEL

(downcast)

Thank you.

–She slings her bag and starts to walk, Mikhael follows at a big gap between them:

MANKGELE

So, what is your name?

MIKHAEL

Mikhael.

MANKGELE

Michael?

MIKHAEL

No, Mikhael.

MANKGELE

Wait! like an angel?

MIKHAEL

No! that is my brother. I am Mikhael.

MANKGELE

You do not understand, I mean Mikhael the angel of God.

MIKHAEL

I am no angel, just a name.

MANKGELE

Ok.

(looking at him, closers)

You have beautiful eyes, wow they are changing colours.

–Closing his eyes and looking away.

MIKHAEL

Oh, it is nothing, just the fluorescent light from the setting sun.

–Silence as they walk. After a rough few minutes of silence,

MANKGELE

Ok! Here we are the South of the woods.

–Halting where the trees no longer visible.

MANKGELE

Well, nice to meet you Mikhael. Hope you find home.

MIKHAEL

Thank you

(hesitant to leave)

What? what is your name?

MANKGELE

Mankgele Adabelle.

MIKHAEL

(showing no emotions)

Oh, nice to meet you. Have a good day

–leaving her.

FADE OUT:

INT. THE MODERN MANSION – SOUTH FARM, NIGHT. The six brothers are seated around a new mahogany table. The atmosphere is tense, and everyone is waiting in anticipation for Mikhael to speak:

CAEL

So, Mikhael, did you have fun?

(smiling)

Silence.

–Mikhael is deep in thought, trying to pull his composure once he perceives that other brothers are watching him:

CASTIEL

What say you, brother?

MIKHAEL

I believe that we should hold off, for now. Assess the situation better. Keep her closer.

CAEL

Mhh, having fun, naughty Mikhael?

MIKHAEL

It is not like that! her situation is complex.

(getting annoyed)

CAEL

Oh! Now she is her?

MIKHAEL

Careful Cael do not put words in my mouth.

(giving a warning look)

–Cael reserves himself in his seat, not even looking like the eldest of the seven:

ANGÊL

Do you have basis for this Mikhael?

MIKHAEL

She is Adabelle.

–Murmurs fill the room,

FAVIAN

This keeps on getting more complicated, I have to see this for myself.

(intrigued)

URIEL

Is she beautiful like me, the least?

ANGÊL

We must tread carefully.

(clearly ignoring Uriel’s question)

CAEL

How about I give a tour guide to our mesmerizing flower, to our dungeon, make her a test subject of some sort?

MIKHAEL

We are not doing that!

CAEL

Ouch! Did I hit a nerve?

CASTIEL

Careful Cael, this is I being peaceful. Though I agree with Brother Favian about seeing this for ourselves, to make sure that we are all on the same page, we have to make up our minds about this.

URIEL

What about Yael?

ANGÊL

We will release him, however, keep a really close watch. Since Uriel you are the one who is concerned, I believe that this will be your turf.

URIEL

Oh no, Favian will be glad. I want to see the girl who is causing trouble for the De Silvo’s.

CASTIEL

Serpente!

[I agree]

ANGÊL

Do you agree Favian

FAVIAN

My honour

(bowing slightly)

FADE OUT.

EXT/INT. UNIVERSIY OF ART AND SCIENCE (UAC)VETENARY SCIENCE/FARM DINING AREA – NIGHT. Mankgele walks through the turnstile glass doors and spots Kushkie. She walks over:

MANKGELE

Hey!

(brightly)

KUSHKIE

You do realise that it is night-time, right?

MANKGELE

Calm down Kush, I have something to tell you.

KUSHKIE

Another dreamy boyfriend, who does not exist by the way?

MANKGELE

Well, this time it is true. I met a new one. Oh, my he is so hot! Like, hotter than the one yesterday, or maybe the same…

(starting to daydream)

KUSHKIE

And who is he?

MANKGELE

Mik-hael.

KUSHKIE

Where does he stay?

(obviously not interested)

MANKGELE

Some farm in the South.

KUSHKIE

You went South? Farmers live there, you can get shot at!

MANKGELE

He was lost and I know the route better.

KUSHKIE

Lost, huh? …

Wait! You were going South all this time?

MANKGELE

Yeah…

(unsure)

I was exploring, and there I was!

(ignoring her concern)

KUSHKIE

You clearly have no fear. You go south, you come back late and even if you meet strange unnamed men you still go back and I know you will still go back tomorrow.

MANKGELE

Kush, you clearly worry for nothing.

KUSHKIE

(clearly annoyed at the level of ignorance)

It is the woods Mankgele! People do not go there. But you see the need to go there, even when it is not safe for a woman.

MANKGELE

(being serious)

I cannot help it. I am somehow drawn to the nature and the river that runs by the farm

KUSHKIE

Are you listening to yourself?

MANKGELE

I feel more at peace when I am there, and I do not expect you to understand! Everyone thinks I am a freak, nobody wants to be my friend. I am an outcast and that promised university life of joy it is clearly oversold!

–Quickly standing up and leaving Kushkie.

FADE OUT:

INT. GIRLS DORMITORRY – NIGHT. Mankgele is asleep and she keeps on turning and tossing. She is having a vivid dream: She oversee the water running backwards and fading as the dream interprets in a soothing but painful voice which she does not recognise:

{V.O}

The water runs dry, men can’t fly. She the queen will rise, and all creatures will acknowledge. Adabelle remember where you come from, come home and we shall show you our history. The true born that unravels the mystery. Be careful of the beast, for men are not men.

–She quickly wakes up, drenched in her sweat. She feels uncomfortable and goes to the bathroom. She washes her face and looks in the mirror and black long hair falls easily on her face and her eyes have turned into auburn with a slight yellowish colour, she looks irresistible as if she is a perfectly drawn cartoon character:

MANKGELE

What the hell? Who are you?

MIRROR REFLECTION

I am you

–She trips at the surprised answer to herself, she gets up and quickly closes the bathroom door:

MANKGELE

What is going on?

MIRROR REFLETION

You need to remember yourself.

MANKGELE

How am I asking and answering myself, but it is me but not me, but what the hell is going on? How am I this beautiful, and why my eyes are like that?

MIRROR REFLECTION

You have to find out on your own. Remember who we are.

–She keeps quiet. She stares at herself and touches her long hair which reaches at her waist:

MANKGELE

How is this my hair? Shit! How am I going to explain an overnight make over? My eyes do not even look human!

–She looks all over the bathroom drawers. She finds scissor’s and advances to the mirror she attempts to cut her hair and the scissor snaps into pieces. She flinches at an urgent knock on the door:

KUSHKIE

Adabelle, are you in the bathroom? I need to pee.

MANKGELE

Yeah, I am coming out.

–She looks around and spots a towel on the rack. She hurriedly ties it around her head. She opens the door looking down, Kushkie does not even bother to look at her, she quickly runs to the toilet seats and sighs out with complete satisfaction.

FADE OUT:

INT. THE MANSION – MORNING. The seven brothers are seated around the table filled with food, the food is appetising, but no one is eating:

CAEL

Welcome back Yael! I have prepared a feast for you, as you can see

–Silence,

ANGÊL

We have agreed that we are going to better collect information on the Adabelle Queen. I have also summoned the mage to come and give us the lineage history of this mysterious Queen.

CAEL

ANGÊL! Are you saying that he is coming?

URIEL

Yes, uncomfortably I had to go and find him. I cannot say I appreciate the gesture, I nearly lost my beautiful face, thanks to Favian’s wrong directions and information.

FAVIAN

You are welcome brother.

URIEL

(ready to stand up)

Oh, you little wench…

ANGÊL

Compose yourself Uriel, you are still intact.

URIEL

As if! He mislead me!

FAVIAN

You found him, didn’t you?

ANGÊL

Everyone must calm down. We are in mortal danger. The danger that caused the hunt and death of our brothers and our only sister.

–Everyone falling silent and casting down.

CASTIEL

So, when will he arrive, I do not like waiting amidst the mortal danger of our kind. I can feel the mortality leaving my body. I haven’t hunted stray humans in a while.

ANGÊL

He will arrive. You know how he likes to take his wonderous time.

–A thud in the fireplace is heard, and

CUT TO:

FIREPLACE:

A short creature in black robes and holding a mage stick appears from the fireplace, they hear a thin complaining voice:

JINJI MAPIPPI

I have a life too, I do not have to listen to these half-breeds. Calling me and summoning me like I am their personal witch. Tsk! They are bad…

 

–He is busy laying things on the floor and talking as he is also busy drawing symbols on the floor:

… what is the spell again?

(looking up thinking)

Ah, I have to just hear what they want and leave immediately, they are burdensome! Hai!

–ANGÊL walks up to him, his hands in his pockets he halts next to him:

ANGÊL

Mapippi, I am glad you can join us

–He jumps, startled by ANGÊL’s voice.

JINJI MAPIPPI

Ah, what am I doing here? I was still preparing a spell to come here.

CAEL

(laughing…)

I guess wondering the earth for centuries has caught up with him.

 

–Jinji swirls his stick and Cael shifts into a Sebae.

ANGÊL

Cartaphilius!

JINJI MAPIPPI

Arg! Do not call me by that name!

YAEL

But it is your name, right?

JINJI MAPIPPI

That is a cursed name. Only the one who has cursed me can call me by that name.

ANGÊL

Cartaphilius! Turn my brother back

JINJI MAPIPPI

Ddaeng! Ok

(swirling his stick)

–Cael shifts back to his human form, his face enraged and Mikhael holding him back:

CASTIEL

(standing up and walking toward Jinji)

I thought you would not show up! Then again, I cannot take you seriously, when you are in this form, you look like a lost kid.

JINJI MAPIPPI

I see you haven’t changed Castiel, still angry and murderous as centuries ago. Know that he did not die in vain.

–Castiel taking a step toward Jinji and ANGÊL holding him back.

ANGÊL

Calm brother!

–Castiel retreats and sits back down. Jinji Mapippi transforms into a man wearing cat-eye reading glasses. He is tall, light in complexion and have fair brown hair, he looks like a professor of a University:

JINJI MAPIPPI

Is this to your liking Raboda?

CASTIEL

Do not use that name in front of me.

JINJI MAPIPPI

Okay, we are touchy today.

(acting as if he did not throw shade)

Well, why am I summoned?

ANGÊL

There is a new development. We seem to have the water Queen descendent, alive and living like a human.

JINJI MAPIPPI

Hiii! So, she did do it

(looking like a child who found a penny)

MIKHAEL

Who?

JINJI MAPIPPI

Er! I mean nothing by that.

CASTIEL

Talk Jinji! We do not have time for your games.

JINJI MAPIPPI

Well there was a tale about the wars of the past. While you were killing the Nerian’s. Their Queen decided to take matters into her own hands and preserve her race. From the tale she bedded a young African prince, disguising herself as a beautiful woman. She fell pregnant and cast a time spell. Her time raced faster than the civil war against her kind, and she bore a true miracle Queen. Adabelle: she can be nor your life, or your death, for the human race is neither hers. she is the balance to the storm and raging sea, she is lady judgment for men and creatures of anomaly alike. Her power is beyond to that of her forebearers, she is the new bright and life to the balance, for the promise must be fulfilled.

–Everyone fell silent; their faces filled with disbelief.

MIKAHEL

(standing up)

All too convenient Mapippi. She cast a time spell? There is only one person who can cast that spell.

–Everyone looked at Mapippi, and they tried to jump him, but he was too quick for them, he disappeared in a beam of light. And the brothers all turned into Sebae, motionless on the floor:

FADE OUT.

EXT. THE WOODS SOUTH FARM – DAY. Mankgele is looking out for a house but cannot spot anything, she holds the binoculars but all she can see is an endless wood and a demarcation fence. Her face is disappointed, and she takes out her drawing book and opens it; she pages through portraits of Mikhael and Yael. We zoom in closer and the detail of their eyes are snakelike.

FADE OUT:

FIVE DAYS LATER

INT. THE MANSION – LATE AFTERNOON. The brothers are busy tidying up, they are in their human form:

CAEL

If he ever turns me and locks me in as a Sebae again, I swear! Five freaking days! I will kill and skin some wondering Jew, Hitler style!

ANGÊL

(exercising his head)

I cannot believe he set this in motion, he planned all of this! He played us.

MIKHAEL

(sitting comfortably with legs crossed on the dinning chair)

What if…

–They all looked at him at once.

CAEL

What!? Mr philosophy?

MIKHAEL

What if he fooled father and we are the reason why we are who we are?

ANGEL

The person who cast a spell was a woman

URIEL

But we never saw whether she was beautiful of not

CASTIEL

We were fooled!

(punching the table)

MIKHAEL

We need to find out why

FAVIAN

I might have a theory

–They all looked at him,

Jinji always liked to experiment, to test out his mortality and see if it is true that he is immortal due to the Emmanuel curse. I believe that he was experimenting on several spells and magic and that is why the outcome now. We were just his experimentation tools, and when he realised that we were an abomination he had to have collateral and safe keep, the Nerians?

YAEL

You may be right but not until the end, the Nerians are the force of nature, the secrets of nature and the sea, they are the guardians of the sea. If you are not wet, you are dry. We are just a reflection of the water Queen and the water clans. We slide to move on land, they slide to move in water. The movements are the same. Jinji Mapippi cannot be able to create such a coincidence.

ANGÊL

You all have to be kidding me.

(his face slightly shifting into a yellow Sebae)

FADE OUT.

INT. MANKGELE’S BEDROOM – MORNING. She is still sleeping and Kushkie is starring at her at a very close range, she slightly turns and opens her eyes, she is alarmed. Kushkie is unfazed; she tries to hide herself:

KUSHKIE

What is wrong with you? You are as ugly as ever

–Mankgele runs to the bathroom, when she realises that she is herself; she sighs and Kushkie walk in the bathroom:

KUSHKIE

There’s no time to waste there is a commotion outside and all the women are losing it, including me

MANKGELE

What are you talking about?

KUSHKIE

There is a man or men outside looking for you, they are waiting at the dining hall, and they are all kinds of humanly impossible handsome, quickly come!

(taking her hand and leading her to the dining hall)

 

CUT TO:

INT. DINNING HALL – MORNING. All the women are whispering and unable to control how infatuated they are with URIEL, who is seated comfortably at the plastic dining hall chair. He looks like he is in a photoshoot and he is asked to present the most subtle beauty to the camera. Whilst he is calmly composed, some women are fainting, and others are hand fanning themselves at the disbelief of URIEL’s beauty.

CUT TO:

INT. MANKGELE is dragged by KUSHKIE. MANKGELE spots URIEL and is dazed by confused look on her face, she looks around the table and spots ANGÊL, FAVIAN, CAEL whom she does not recognise. And finally settles on MIKHAEL and YAEL. She uneasily walks toward them, and ANGÊL is on his feet, before he could say anything, URIEL is in front of him:

URIEL

Uriel De Silvo, one of the seven

(taking her hand and kissing it)

–the rest of the brothers all uneasily stands up; with shock and fear befallen on their faces.

END.
