THE 24 ELDERS

SERIES 1 - HAKKADOSH'S GHOST TALE

BY
HOLYONE TOMBARI DODOH (a.k.a Holiyo)

ABOUT
The 24 Elders is a historical event adapted from Revelation (KJV), which brings to light the stories of the past and foretells the future. It reveals deep concepts in the Biblical book of Revelation. However, this story is written in a theatrical style rather than in prose. The best way to get the actual interpretation/meaning of what this book implies is to read it from the second series to the seventh series sequentially. The first series is entirely about the process, which Hakkadosh used in getting the contents in subsequent series.

This story houses the origin of the Creator, the 24 Elders, Seraphim and Cherubim, the Archangels, Angels, universes, Stars, Planets and all living things. The story contains the origin of the first division in Shamayim, what led to the fall of Lucifer and his angels from Shamayim, how humanity came to be in existence, the present status of Shamayim, and the final battle-strategy of Satan against the Creator and how to stop this cunning strategy before the arrival of Yeshua.

The 24 Elders’ first series is considered Hakkadosh's Ghost Tale, which is a story about the origin of life told by astral alien beings. Hakkadosh consciously and uncontrollably experiences astral projection. As a Christian, he has the challenge of differentiating astral projection from demonic attacks. On his way to finding out what was happening to him, he encounters astral beings in the astral world. Hakkadosh travels to hidden places with his astral body and was given the tale of creation, which aligns with his faith as a Christian.

INTRODUCTION

DESCRIPTION OF THE FORMAT AND TERMS USED

This story is simply written in a way that it can be well understood by its readers. Nevertheless, this method (partial screenplay style) is used so that a clear picture of events can be seen on the mind of the reader.
Use of present tense and present continues tense is applied to align with the format used. However, the use of old English of the King James Version of the Bible is present in this story as well. Examples of what you will come across in this story includes:

1. Parenthesis “( )”
• This encloses a short action or event that occurs when a Character is giving a dialogue.

2. Braces “{ }”
• This encloses (an indented UPPERCASE) time and location of a particular scene or event. Example:
{EXT. GARDEN OF EDEN - DAY}
Or
{INT. JOHN’S BEDROOM - DAY}

3. Slash “ / ” between Location and Time
• This is mostly used to avoid the usage of transitions like “[INTERCUT]” in other to allow free flow of reading. A slash can occur between two different locations and time in order to avoid repeated time and location so that the reader can flow with a good understanding of what he or she is reading.

4. EXT (Exterior)
• This means that an event or a scene is taking place outside a building. Sometimes, this word will not be repeatedly used in the second venue, if the preceding scene happened outside a building.

5. INT (Interior)
• This means that an event or a scene is taking place within a building. Sometimes, this word is not repeatedly used in the second venue, if the preceding scene happened within a building.

6. Day
• This means that an event happened during the day.

7. Night
• This means that an event happened during the night.

Story begins with a Teaser and will be splitted into Episodes.

Episode 1

TEASER

{EXT. MARS - DAY}

Machines are drawing water from beneath the surface of the land into artificial streams and ponds.

Some machines are sinking water back into the ground at another end of the streams.

There are cities and numerous trees/algae planted around the cities.

In the artificial streams, there are solar/electric heaters keeping the temperature of the water; flowing in the streams, between twenty and thirteen-degree Celsius.

A power station is providing electricity for the cities.

There are large farms outside the cities watered by water dispensers.
Showers are shedding waters on trees and on all plantations around the cities.

{SPACE}

Earth is spinning, the light of the sun is shining on earth. Suddenly, sunlight starts to diminish gradually.

HAKKADOSH (V.O)
The second world. A world that is coming to an end. The letter 666 is on the foreheads of every human that exists.

{CNN CENTRE, EARTH}

REPORTER
Human population in the universe is over 295 billion. Apart from planet Tessia; which is outside our solar system having over 8.3 billion people, Planet Mars has more than 4.89 million people and Earth has 287 billion people. Though Earth is carrying the largest population, scientists still believe that Earth may still be able to carry more than that. Despite the fact that Tessia is in a habitable zone and very similar to Earth, about 4 million people on planet Tessia suffered from a natural disaster, which scientists are yet to discover its cause. And, thanks to NASA; doing all their best to sustain humanity in the universe.

HAKKADOSH (V.O)
It is legal to have the mark; 666 on any part of your body and illegal to live without it as its penalty is death.

TWENTY YEARS LATER

{NASA STATION, MARS}

Astronauts disclose their observations to Broadcasters.

REPORTER
According to NASA, “The moon is very far away from us now and so is the sun.”

HAKKADOSH (V.O)
The whole world or human race in the universe has one language, one nation, one skin colour, one god, and one leader. Though living in private homes with a democratic setting of government, the whole world is one family living in sublime peace.

TWO THOUSAND YEARS LATER

{INT. NASA SPACE STATION}

Astronauts see through their equipment that Sunlight is diminishing faster.

{EXT. NASA STATION, MARS}

A member of the Astronauts says to the media.

ASTRONAUT
Our records for more than two thousand years ago, reports how everything in the universe was moving farther from each other, but our present discovery shows how everything is suddenly coming together. And, the rate at which they are moving together is unusual. Right now, we are still learning about the two dwarf planets and the gas giant planet moving toward Tessia, it may hit the planet or we don’t know yet anyway. Secondly, In few days’ time, the sun may completely become a black hole; it appears it's running out of its fuel in a strange and unexpected way. We actually do not know exactly what's going to happen yet. Maybe we are going to have a new experience of existence in the universe, but everybody should relax, don't panic, it's the nature of the universe; probably moving us to a new age.

TWO WEEKS LATER

{SPACE}

Three planets clash into planet Tessia.

HAKKADOSH'S GHOST TALE

EARLIER

{INT. HAKKADOSH’S BEDROOM - NIGHT}

Hakkadosh; a 19 years old young man, is kneeling on his small bed, closer to the window. A King James Version Bible is before him.

HAKKADOSH
(eyes closed)
I thank you, Lord, for today. Cover me with your love and protection tonight. As I sleep, let your angels keep watch over me. Amen.
(looks at the clock; the time is 12:14 AM. He lies on the bed and sleeps)

LATER

At 04:09 AM, Hakkadosh wakes. He lies still; gazing up at the ceiling with eyes open.

Dogs wail from far distances.

The window is open, cool breeze lifts the curtain.

HAKKADOSH
(through the mind)
I didn’t close the window? Well, I’m too weak to stand and do anything right now.
(sighs)
I wish to know the origin of life. Hope evolution theory is true so I won’t go to hell for any slight mistake I make here on earth.

Suddenly, Hakkadosh's astral body rises above his physical body. He consciously struggles to move but cannot move any part of his body.

Hakkadosh sees shadows of people on the wall and hears sounds of thousands of bees.

Suddenly, Hakkadosh's astral body enters into his physical body, he gains his consciousness and sits up immediately.

HAKKADOSH
(gasps)
What was that? O my God I saw demons!
(exhales)
Thank God I overcame them.
(gets up from the bed and sits on the floor)
No, no, no, no, I can’t go back there to sleep. In fact, I’m not sleeping anymore, maybe I might die if I try to sleep.

{PARLOUR – DAY}

Esther; Hakkadosh's younger sister is watching television.

HAKKADOSH
(walks into the parlour)
Hey, Esther, you’re becoming addictive to movies.

ESTHER
So what?

HAKKADOSH
Not good for you.

ESTHER
O my God! Hakkadosh, don’t you see I’m in the middle of something?

HAKKADOSH
(sits beside Esther)
Shut up!
(Esther sighs)
Well, I think I was under attack last night.

ESTHER
Did they use gun or knife against you?

HAKKADOSH
Never mind.

ESTHER
Better.

FIVE YEARS LATER

{INT. HAKKADOSH’S BEDROOM - NIGHT}

The room is dark. Hakkadosh is sleeping on his bed and after a while, he opens his eyes.

HAKKADOSH
(looks at the clock, the time is 3:00 AM)
Shit! It’s three A.M.
(exhales)
This experience I’m having is really, really strange. They think I’m crazy for having strange experiences at night. Hmm… I’m only afraid of death, just wished to live longer.
(sighs)
What if reincarnation is real? Or, what if Bible story of creation isn’t true? Evolution should better be true because I believe that if evolution is true, that means reincarnation is real. In that case, if I die in this life, I’ll come back in another body. Hmm… that really would be cool; an unending life. Really cool!
(stays calm and quiet for a while)

Suddenly, Hakkadosh's astral body rises above his physical body, he sees clouds of darkness over him, his body becomes stiff and his head vibrates slightly.

Everywhere becomes completely dark and Hakkadosh struggles with his breathing. He sees the walls of his room slightly.

HAKKADOSH
(over the mind)
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus!
(gains his consciousness and sits up. Touches his neck)
Ouch!
(sits on the floor for nearly one hour)
What was suppressing me on my neck? Those demons think they can kill me or what?
(switches on the light)
Nope, I will never sleep in the dark again.
(sighs)
Maybe there are demons or dead people become demons after living as humans on earth. What if all these are just happening in my head?
(gasps)
Hmm…

SIX HOURS LATER

{DAY}

Hakkadosh is operating the internet through his laptop on his reading table. He shares his experience in a social group titled “MYSTERIOUS ENCOUNTERS AND EXPERIENCES ” on Facebook.

Someone comments on Hakkadosh's post and explain that what Hakkadosh is experiencing is called “OUT OF BODY EXPERIENCE”

HAKKADOSH
Wow! So, this is a normal experience, which anyone can just have? Wow! Wow!

Hakkadosh searches about “Out of Body Experience” on the internet and learns other names for “Out of Body Experience” as “Astral Projection, Paralysis and Near Death Experience”.

Hakkadosh suddenly stumbles on an article titled “How to do Astral Projection and lucid dreams”. He starts studying and practising how to do astral projection.

THREE WEEKS LATER

{NIGHT}

HAKKADOSH
(lying on his bed. The time is 4:20 AM)
Let me try to do it now.

Hakkadosh stays calm and relaxed without closing his eyes. He makes his body stays still without moving.

Suddenly, Hakkadosh's astral body rises above his physical body and sits up.

HAKKADOSH (ASTRAL BODY)
(dazed)
Wow!
(travels fast to the wall)
Wow!
(turns and sees his physical body lying on the bed)
What?
(walks closer to his physical body)
So, I’m dead?
(tries to touch his physical body and a magnetic field carries him into his physical body. He opens his eyes, stays calm and looks around.)

HAKKADOSH
(whispers)
Was that real?
(gets up)
Yeah!!! I did it!

NEXT NIGHT

Hakkadosh is lying on the bed and suddenly, his astral body floats above his physical body. He rolls out of his physical body to the floor.

Hakkadosh's astral body walks to the wall and tries to touch it. His hand pierces through the wall and he senses the presence of the wall but cannot touch it.

Hakkadosh walks to the front of his wall clock and stares at it. The time is 4:50 AM. He turns to his physical body.

HAKKADOSH (ASTRAL BODY)
I will study my body.
(walks closer to his body and his body magnets him)

HAKKADOSH
(wakes up)
Damn! I screwed it up, I shouldn’t have come closer to my body.
(jumps up, goes to the wall clock, and the time is 4:54 AM)
Jesus Christ! This was real like the damn real? Jesus Christ!

ONWARD

Hakkadosh continues to do astral projection, studies all the trees and everything around his environment using his astral body.

Hakkadosh's astral body travels to his neighbours’ houses and sees their astral body slightly floating above them. He becomes afraid and wakes up.

The next day, Hakkadosh learns how to fly with his astral body.

TWO DAYS LATER

Hakkadosh's astral body is flying. He flies up to the sky and slightly enters into space.

Hakkadosh starts flying back to the Earth. The sky of Earth holds him, he struggles for a while but to no avail. Fear comes over him and he wakes up quickly.

HAKKADOSH
Jesus Christ!
(sits and nods)
No, no, no, no, I think I’m joking about this thing. I’m not going to do this again. Nope… what if that thing killed me? Hmm… no, no, no, I won’t give it a try.

THREE DAYS LATER

Hakkadosh is sleeping on his bed.

HAKKADOSH
(suddenly opens his eyes and looks at the clock. The time is 1:24 AM)
Well, let me give it a try today but stay away from the sky.
(after a while)

ASTRAL WORLD

Hakkadosh's astral body floats out of his physical body, goes through the roof and appears in the air above his house. He goes back into his room to confirm his sleeping body.

{EXT. STREET - NIGHT}

Hakkadosh is flying above the streets.

HAKKADOSH
(looks up)
Haha! I’m not going there. At least not today.
(starts hearing sounds of music from a far distance)
Who are those people playing music at this hour of the night? Let me check out what’s going on!

Hakkadosh travels at the speed of light into a big forest. At a distance, he sees a group of astral body of humans playing and singing music under a slightly illuminating tree.

Hakkadosh hides behind a bush and observes carefully. Three persons are purple, four are yellow, others are brownish and the one kneeling under the tree is black in complexion.

The people he is seeing are dancing around the tree while the black one in their midst is kneeling before the slightly illuminating tree.

The people are only singing vocable music.

HAKKADOSH
Wow! So, there are people who do this to have fun among themselves here? Haha, I think I should go join them.
(carefully observes)
Hmm… their music sounds cultic. Hold on, boy.

The people stop playing music and kneel around the tree and the black one.

The black one stands while others keep bowing their heads before him for roughly seven times.

HAKKADOSH
(whispers)
Shit! That probably would be a cult group, I think I should go home now.

The black one sees Hakkadosh.

HAKKADOSH
(hides under the bush)
O my God! What should I do now?
(peeps from behind the bush)

All the strange people start flying in the direction of Hakkadosh.

Hakkadosh runs and flies before them.

The strange people start laughing and chasing Hakkadosh. They throw fireballs against Hakkadosh.

HAKKADOSH
(runs in nearly the speed of light. He dodges some of the fireballs but some hit him; producing a clashed metal sound)
O my God! Where am I going? I don’t even know where I am.

The strange people throw more fireballs and it slows down Hakkadosh at every hit.

HAKKADOSH
Ouch!

The black one among the strange people is very close to Hakkadosh. He stretches his hand to touch Hakkadosh.

HAKKADOSH
(shouts)
Jesus!

Suddenly, a very bright light surrounds Hakkadosh.

PHYSICAL WORLD

{INT. HAKKADOSH’S BEDROOM - NIGHT}

HAKKADOSH
(wakes)
Jesus Christ!
(stunned)
Demons attacked me…

TWO WEEKS LATER

{CLASSROOM - DAY}

Hakkadosh is sitting in one corner in the classroom. His friend Joseph walks to him.

JOSEPH
Hey, Hak!
(sits in front of Hakkadosh)
I’ve noticed your weird looks these days. Is everything all right?

HAKKADOSH
No, man! I think I’m under some attacks from demons.

JOSEPH
(smiles)
Tell me, have you started abusing communion wines?

HAKKADOSH
Haha! That my Dad is a pastor doesn’t mean I’ll mess around with communion wines. I don’t even see it though.

JOSEPH
Hmm… so, why the attacks?

HAKKADOSH
For two weeks now, I’ve been sleeping during the day and stays awake all night.

JOSEPH
Why?

HAKKADOSH
I practised how to do astral projection and when I did it, I met beings that weren’t friendly at all.

JOSEPH
Astral projection? You mean you can leave your body consciously?

HAKKADOSH
O my God, what else is astral projection?

JOSEPH
Teach me how to do it.

HAKKADOSH
What? Are you out of your mind?

JOSEPH
Out of my mind? Are you out of your mind?

HAKKADOSH
Do you want to be like me? I mean, you want people to think that you’ve been abusing communion wines, sitting in a corner after classes?

JOSEPH
Come on!

HAKKADOSH
Man, I don’t think this is really good for you but I’ll teach you anyway!

JOSEPH
Yeah! That’s my boy…

HAKKADOSH
See, man, I don’t want to do this again.

JOSEPH
No, boy, you really need to do this. At least, you can see bad things. My grandmother told me that witches and wizards bewitch people with astral projection.

HAKKADOSH
So, that’s what you want to be doing?

JOSEPH
No, you know, I’ve been having strange experiences in my life. My grandmother said it’s possible to see bad energies around you using your astral body.

HAKKADOSH
Did she tell you the possible demons you can encounter in that world?

JOSEPH
No, but I think you can only see demons at awkward hours.

HAKKADOSH
What?

JOSEPH
You don’t believe me?

HAKKADOSH
You may be right, man! I think I intruded into the meetings of the demons that chased me. And, it was very early in the middle of the night.

JOSEPH
You see? You’re going to teach me, besides you don’t have a choice.

{EXT. SCHOOL GATE - DAY}

Joseph and Hakkadosh are standing near the gate.

JOSEPH
See, I’ve tried all the instructions in the materials you gave me but have not been able to do astral projection. Tell me, what is wrong?

HAKKADOSH
I don’t know. Maybe you didn’t do it well.

JOSEPH
You said you did it in weeks but then it’s almost two months and I’m yet to get anywhere.

HAKKADOSH
See, this thing was already happening to me before I learnt to control it.

JOSEPH
What are you insinuating?

HAKKADOSH
Look, I’m not saying that you can’t do it. You just have to try harder.

JOSEPH
Harder, how about I come to your place?

HAKKADOSH
No. I prefer to stay alone.

JOSEPH
Shut up. I don’t even need to ask you for permission. Besides, it’s a family house.

HAKKADOSH
Our friendship ends here in school, man. I don’t want my parents to begin asking me questions.

JOSEPH
You can’t be serious. Whatever, if you don’t want me in your home then fine. So, tell me exactly what you did when your body was separated.

HAKKADOSH
Not today.

JOSEPH
What? Are you ok?
(Hakkadosh smiles)
Hmm… communion wine. I see!

HAKKADOSH
Hahaha!

{INT. HAKKADOSH'S BEDROOM - NIGHT}

Hakkadosh is reading The King James Version Bible on his reading table.
The telephone rings.

HAKKADOSH
(picks the telephone)
Hello?

JOSEPH
(over the telephone)
Hey, Hak! I’m on my way to your place tonight. Give me directions.

HAKKADOSH
O my God! Why didn’t you tell me you were coming?

JOSEPH
(over the telephone)
Well, I’m telling you now.

HAKKADOSH
I’m not at home!

JOSEPH
(over the telephone)
Where are you?

HAKKADOSH
I’m sleeping in school.

JOSEPH
(over the telephone)
I’m around the school now, where are you?

HAKKADOSH
Ok bye!
(switches off the phone)
This guy won’t let me rest.

LATER

Hakkadosh is sleeping. He suddenly wakes and looks at the time. The time is 4:03 AM.

HAKKADOSH
(sighs)
That’s a good time to do this.
(looks through the window)
It’s full moon! Things will be bright anyway.
(stays steady for a while)

ASTRAL WORLD

Suddenly, Hakkadosh's astral body comes out of Hakkadosh’s physical body.

HAKKADOSH
Good, at least I’m safe in here.
(goes through the wall)

{EXT. HAKKADOSH'S COMPOUND - NIGHT}

Hakkadosh walks to the tree in the compound and looks in the direction of his room.

A man clothed in white; having a transparent head like a mirror, is standing close to Hakkadosh's house. The man has no face but a light is surrounding his head.

HAKKADOSH
O my God! This is in my head. Not real.
(stands boldly)
Okay, let me go back to my body.
(walks closer to his house, the man stands in his way)
Who are you? Where did you come from? And what do you want from me?

EYEWITNESS
Consider me a friend. Call me; Eyewitness. Please, I only need your attention, blessed one. I was ordered by the council to bring you. Please follow me.

HAKKADOSH
And if I don’t?

EYEWITNESS
I will let you go, I cannot force you against your will, but if you follow me you will be glad you did.

HAKKADOSH
You’re looking scary already, I think I don’t have any choice than to follow you.

Eyewitness starts walking and Hakkadosh follows him.

{STRANGE ROAD - DAY}

EYEWITNESS
I was there when you were born. I’ve watched you all your life. I prevented many bad things that wanted to happen to you. I removed shame from you on many occasions, I know one day you’ll remember them and will know. Most of those things were to prevent your future from been ruined. But after this, I guess I’m going to leave you alone.
(Hakkadosh utters no word)

{STRANGE WORLD}

Eyewitness and Hakkadosh enter a garden full of beautiful trees. The skies of this place illuminate light as the sun but without hotness.

There are several classes and lectures going on under the trees. All the people under these trees look exactly like humans. Some classes are having four members, some seven and so on.

The face of Eyewitness shows up. He has light brown skin.

Eyewitness starts walking towards a particular tree with three people without a teacher.

EYEWITNESS
We are not in your universe anymore.

HAKKADOSH
(gasps)
Is this where dead people go?

EYEWITNESS
Are you dead?

HAKKADOSH
Maybe, I don’t know, but I can still feel my body there at home.

EYEWITNESS
Only you can decide to die in our hands, we do not have the right or power to kill you.

HAKKADOSH
Hmm…

Hakkadosh and Eyewitness get to the tree they were walking to.

EYEWITNESS
This is your class.

HAKKADOSH
Is this where I’ll be for eternity? O sorry, but you brought me all the way here for a class?

EYEWITNESS
Yes, you need to pay very much attention to the teacher and be careful with the questions you ask, because all will be answered irrespective of nothing, but some knowledge can put your life in danger in both this life and the life to come.

Hakkadosh nods in agreement and sits on one of the golden chairs that are there.

Eyewitness walks to a distance and keeps watching at Hakkadosh.

HAKKADOSH
(through the mind)
Thank God he’s watching at me.
Suddenly, a man with two huge feathers appears in front of Hakkadosh's class.

HAKKADOSH
(yells)
Jesus!

Everybody including Hakkadosh, the feathered man and the Eyewitness bow their heads and make a recitation.

ALL
Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure, they are and were created.

Everybody rises and sits.

HAKKADOSH
(through his mind)
At the name of Jesus, every knee shall bow! I am probably in a demonic kingdom. Shit! Hope they won’t punish me for saying that.

TEACHER
(to Hakkadosh)
I am your Teacher, Hakkadosh.
(to the class)
Today, we’ll be looking at…

HAKKADOSH
(interrupts)
Where am I?

TEACHER
You are in Olam-Machashebeth.

HAKKADOSH
What is Olam-Machashebeth?

TEACHER
A universe different from your own where we teach creatures from all the universes in Ab-Olam.

HAKKADOSH
And what exactly am I doing here?

TEACHER
You are here for something I cannot tell you right now, please no questions again, I take my leave.
(disappears)

Eyewitness appears behind Hakkadosh.

EYEWITNESS
Let’s go, young man.

Hakkadosh stands and follows Eyewitness.

Story so far...

{EXT. HAKKADOSH'S COMPOUND - NIGHT}

Eyewitness and Hakkadosh suddenly appear under the tree in the middle of the compound. The head of Eyewitness become like a mirror as it was.

EYEWITNESS
What did I tell you about questions?

HAKKADOSH
Tell me, are we demons?

EYEWITNESS
Another one! No! We can never be.

HAKKADOSH
Then why did we fall at the name of Jesus, when we are not demons?

EYEWITNESS
You are so full of questions. Well, In the name of Jesus every knee must bow, on earth it does not affect humans due to their weakness.

HAKKADOSH
Why are we weak?

EYEWITNESS
Humans are still in their developing process to become like us; their genuine nature. The only power humans have is ‘Authority’.

HAKKADOSH
What?

EYEWITNESS
You ask so many questions. Now, go into your body.

HAKKADOSH
(wakes)
Wow!
(stands and walks to the clock. The time is 5:54 AM)

NEXT DAY

ASTRAL WORLD

{EXT. HAKKADOSH'S COMPOUND - NIGHT}

Hakkadosh is under the tree in the middle of the compound.

EYEWITNESS
(suddenly appears behind Hakkadosh)
Ready?

HAKKADOSH
Yeah, I’ve been waiting.

EYEWITNESS
Let’s go. Hold my hand.
(stretches his right hand)

HAKKADOSH
Okay.
(stands and holds Eyewitness’s hand and they both disappear)

{EXT. GARDEN, OLAM-MACHASHEBETH - DAY}

Hakkadosh and Eyewitness appear under the tree where Hakkadosh previously had class.

The colleagues of Hakkadosh are already seated.

Eyewitness walks away to a distance and keeps watching at Hakkadosh.

HAKKADOSH
(to his colleagues)
Do you guys ever leave here?
(sits)

Suddenly another feather man appears. This one, his feathers are larger and bigger than the former. His face is covered with hairs that it is impossible to see the true nature of his face.

HAKKADOSH
(through the mind)
Who is this?

GABRIEL
I am Gabriel the Son of the Most High God; the Holy Father and creator of all life.

HAKKADOSH
(stands and dances)
Hahahahahaha!
(yells)
I have seen an Angel!

Hakkadosh's colleagues begin to laugh at Hakkadosh.

HAKKADOSH
(suddenly stays calm and sits as everybody was looking at him)
Oh! Sorry for distracting!

GABRIEL
Today, I did not come to stay long, something brought me here and that I wonder what it is.
(points at Hakkadosh)
What are you doing here?

HAKKADOSH
Well, sir, I do not know,
(points at the Eyewitness)
He brought me here.

GABRIEL
You have changed; some say you are ready, while others say you are not. I wonder if you are.

HAKKADOSH
Ready for what?

GABRIEL
Ready to enter this place without dying and able to carry information from here; yes, yesterday was the test and you passed. On that note
(to all)
I will teach you about your universes and the natural forces it carries, but save your questions and ask me next time.

{EXT. HAKKADOSH'S COMPOUND - NIGHT}

Hakkadosh and Eyewitness appear under the tree in the middle of the compound.

HAKKADOSH
See, what’s your real name?

EYEWITNESS
I was waiting for the day you’d ask me that and here is that day. Call me Eyewitness.

HAKKADOSH
What? That’s what you told me, Eyewitness is not a name for anyone.

EYEWITNESS
Yes, blessed one, I am your eyewitness, your kind calls me guarding Angel. Back there in my home, I am called Cherubiel.

HAKKADOSH
Cherubiel.

EYEWITNESS
Call me Eyewitness if you still want us to continue as friends.

HAKKADOSH
Okay, as always.
(walks close to his room)

EYEWITNESS
Hey! I think you should keep a record of all you’re going through right now.

HAKKADOSH
Why?

EYEWITNESS
For the good of the both of us.

HAKKADOSH
What good?

EYEWITNESS
See, if you still want me around you then record whatever you’ll see here. The world needs it, your people need it.

HAKKADOSH
Are there things I’ll see later?

EYEWITNESS
You ask so many questions. We’ll meet the next full moon.

HAKKADOSH
Why full moon?

EYEWITNESS
Another one! We walk under light, not under darkness or in partial darkness. If you can come out in the afternoon then you’ll see me always. Got it?

HAKKADOSH
I may be disturbed during the day. My super quiet time is during the night.

EYEWITNESS
Later then.

HAKKADOSH
Later like…
(Eyewitness disappears)
Whatever, okay wake up.

PHYSICAL WORLD

{INT. HAKKADOSH'S BEDROOM - NIGHT}

HAKKADOSH
(wakes and looks at the time. The time is 5:20 AM)
Hmm…

FOUR MONTHS LATER

{EXT. GRAVEYARD - DAY}

Hakkadosh's family members and friends are walking from the graveyard. Hakkadosh lost his mother and she has been buried.
Joseph holds the hand of Hakkadosh.

JOSEPH
But wait, did you see anything about your mum’s death?

HAKKADOSH
They didn’t tell me. I think they are just after their own greedy and selfish goal.

JOSEPH
Your Dad doesn’t want to smile at least for a bit.

HAKKADOSH
Joe! This is a time for grief.

JOSEPH
O sorry, I got it. So, why don’t you insist that they show you your mother if they are really what they claim to be?

HAKKADOSH
It’s not that easy, man. Since my mum died, I’ve found it difficult to go there.

JOSEPH
Tell me, what greedy and selfish goal do you think they are after?

HAKKADOSH
I don’t know yet but they keep telling me to tell the world about them and whatever they’ll show me later. When I asked about my mum, they didn’t talk about it and force me to endure the pain.

JOSEPH
Is that why you stop going there?

HAKKADOSH
Yeah!

JOSEPH
Do you trust them?

HAKKADOSH
Well, each time I’m with them I feel at home, I feel free, complete and full. You know I’ve been saying that I won’t marry. But guess what?

JOSEPH
What?

HAKKADOSH
Eyewitness want me to have a girlfriend. Not just a girlfriend but a wife. He said I must have one.

JOSEPH
Hmm… strange, do you even have someone or I should get one for you?

HAKKADOSH
No, there is this girl I used to like. I think I’ll start opening up to her.

JOSEPH
What if she doesn’t accept you?

HAKKADOSH
That’s when I’ll contact you to get one for me. Ever since Eyewitness insisted that I have a girlfriend, the feeling I had for this girl increased. My mother has been telling me in my dreams to go for this particular girl too. Secondly, I’ve wedded her in my dreams several times.

JOSEPH
Wow! I think you should go for this girl and I think Eyewitness is trying to help you. You’ve lived lonely for long and I think it’s time you need a woman in your life.

HAKKADOSH
Are you possessed?

JOSEPH
Possessed?

HAKKADOSH
You talk like Eyewitness.

JOSEPH
Haha! I’ll be glad to be him. Yes, I am your Eyewitness.
(keeps a mean face)
I think you should stop drinking communion wines.

HAKKADOSH
Hahaha! You can’t be serious.

JOSEPH
So, are you going there again?

HAKKADOSH
No.

JOSEPH
See, we have to know what they are up to. Believe me, we do.

HAKKADOSH
Seriously?

JOSEPH
Yes! Besides, we’ll be the first ones to know their plans. What if they want to destroy or save this planet?

HAKKADOSH
I don’t think so.

JOSEPH
How do you know?

Story so far...

ASTRAL WORLD

{EXT. HAKKADOSH'S COMPOUND - NIGHT}

Hakkadosh is sitting under the compound’s tree.

EYEWITNESS
(appears behind Hakkadosh)
There is time for everything.

HAKKADOSH
Tell me, did you possess my friend; Joseph?

EYEWITNESS
No, your friend was orchestrated by the Elders.

HAKKADOSH
You keep telling me about the Elders. Who are they?

EYEWITNESS
You will know in time. Not now. I want us to talk about your mother.

HAKKADOSH
Will you bring her back?

EYEWITNESS
No, I can’t. Your world is controlled by souls. No one can stop death except the Son of the Most High.
(keeps quiet for a while)

HAKKADOSH
What. Are there things you’re not telling me?

EYEWITNESS
Your mother’s mission is over, she didn’t just die. The Lord took her, she’s at a better place. If you truly love her, you’ll love her to stay where she is now.

HAKKADOSH
Where is she?

EYEWITNESS
She’s at home. But I can’t tell you everything, If there is anything you wish to know, ask during the class.

HAKKADOSH
The class sucks.

EYEWITNESS
Ask Gabriel.

PHYSICAL WORLD

{INT. HAKKADOSH'S BEDROOM - DAY}

Hakkadosh is reading his Bible. He drinks a glass of water and closes the Bible. He suddenly sits upright and opens his Bible.

HAKKADOSH
In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
(suddenly stands)
Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait! Yes! That’s the damn question. Good! I can’t wait for tonight. Yeah! Good!

ASTRAL WORLD

{EXT. GARDEN, OLAM-MACHASHEBETH - DAY}

Hakkadosh and his three colleagues are sitting, waiting for their teacher.

The Teacher appears.

HAKKADOSH
No, I want Gabriel.

TEACHER
What?

HAKKADOSH
(yells)
Angel Gabriel, please come! I need you!

Everybody including people under nearby trees looks at Hakkadosh amazingly.

The Teacher points at the mouth of Hakkadosh and Hakkadosh's mouth freezes.

Then the Teacher smiles and removes people’s attention from Hakkadosh.

HAKKADOSH
(through the mind)
Gabriel, show yourself now please I beg you if you can hear me.

The Teacher disappears and Gabriel appears immediately.

GABRIEL
What is the problem, young man?

HAKKADOSH
I have one important question for you and I want you to answer it…

GABRIEL
It’s okay. What is it?

HAKKADOSH
First, promise me you are going to give me answers.

GABRIEL
I will give you answers to what I know alone.

HAKKADOSH
Tell me the origin of life, why God hides from humans, why his son was born on earth, why Satan was thrown down from heaven and all you know about the future.

GABRIEL
(stunned)
Are you serious about that?

HAKKADOSH
Yes, hundred per cent.

GABRIEL
(looks at Hakkadosh's Eyewitness with a sad look on his face)
Did you know about this?

EYEWITNESS
He was curious, my Lord.

GABRIEL
(to Hakkadosh)
I’m afraid you already have answers to your questions.

HAKKADOSH
Believe me, I don’t.

GABRIEL
Have you read the Book of Revelation in your Bible?

HAKKADOSH
Yes! But I do not understand fully well.

GABRIEL
True! Here, we use parables to describe reality.

HAKKADOSH
Please make me understand.

GABRIEL
(to Eyewitness)
Come, open his eyes to the past and future.
(to Hakkadosh)
When you get it, do not keep it to yourself. Tell the world.

HAKKADOSH
Thank you so much!

GABRIEL
But I must warn you,

HAKKADOSH
About what.

GABRIEL
You may attract so many attention to yourself. All the bad spirits will try to stop you but if you are lucky, you’ll make it through. We’ll see next time.
(disappears)

TEACHER
(appears immediately as Gabriel disappears)
Class dismiss

HAKKADOSH
(stands)
No! Why do you sound like that?

EYEWITNESS
(appears behind Hakkadosh)
Please, it’s time to go.

{EXT. HAKKADOSH'S COMPOUND - NIGHT}

Suddenly Hakkadosh and the Eyewitness appear under the tree.

EYEWITNESS
Please take it easy, boy.

HAKKADOSH
You know, I’m scared, I don’t think I want to know anything again.

EYEWITNESS
The order has been given, there is no turning back.

HAKKADOSH
You mean I don’t have any choice?

EYEWITNESS
You see, this world is different from what you think it is.

HAKKADOSH
What if I don’t want to know again?

EYEWITNESS
You may die.

HAKKADOSH
What?

EYEWITNESS
Yes. The instinct that pushed you to ask this question made it your purpose.

HAKKADOSH
My purpose?

EYEWITNESS
Yes.

HAKKADOSH
All these things are just happening in my head. This is not real!

EYEWITNESS
You will know someday if it was.

HAKKADOSH
So, there is no way out?

EYEWITNESS
I’ll be waiting here tomorrow. Just don’t be late.

PHYSICAL WORLD

{INT. HAKKADOSH'S BEDROOM - NIGHT}

HAKKADOSH
(opens his eyes and sits)
Wow! What have I brought upon myself?
(sighs)
I have no choice… hmm… weird.
(exhales heavily)
Well, what’s there anyway? I’ll do it. Maybe it’s just happening in my head the way I wanted it to be. But why me.
(holds his cheek)
Jesus Christ! This is real.

NEXT DAY

ASTRAL WORLD

{EXT. HAKKADOSH'S COMPOUND - NIGHT}

Hakkadosh and Eyewitness are standing under the tree at the middle of the compound.

EYEWITNESS
It shall take time, and you cannot get all the answers within the few hours you come here. You will come at any time you wish, I will always be there to take you to the Past.

HAKKADOSH
(nods)
Okay.

EYEWITNESS
(gives Hakkadosh a footwear)
Wear this.

HAKKADOSH
Why?

EYEWITNESS
You will know as we move on. Please do not pull it off for any reason if you want to come back alive.

HAKKADOSH
(gasps)
Hmm… all right sir.

EYEWITNESS
(stretches forward his hand)
Good. Now let’s begin. Hold my hand.
(Hakkadosh holds his hand and they disappear)

{ROAD OF NO RETURN - DAY}

Hakkadosh and Eyewitness appear on a road that you do not need to walk because the ground is moving you and you cannot move back. There are many people on the road and the road is very wide.

EYEWITNESS
This road is different from the previous we do use to Olam-Machashebeth, this one is called Road of No Return.

HAKKADOSH
The Road of No Return.

EYEWITNESS
Never ever step your foot on it while this journey is yet to end.

HAKKADOSH
What happens if I do?

EYEWITNESS
It means you’re dead.

HAKKADOSH
Jesus! You mean all these people are dead?

EYEWITNESS
Exactly.

HAKKADOSH
You mean I’m walking with the dead?

EYEWITNESS
This road only moves forward and never backward. But with the footwear on you, you’ll be safe.

HAKKADOSH
O I got it. I’ll never touch it.
(looks at the face of a dead and shivers)

EYEWITNESS
They can’t see you either. So, there’s nothing to worry about.

HAKKADOSH
(exhales)
Thank God.

The road moves Hakkadosh and Eyewitness to the right track from the main track where the dead are on.

EYEWITNESS
We are going to our destination.

HAKKADOSH
Hmm…

{RAHAH-KOL – DAY/NIGHT}

The road moves Hakkadosh and Eyewitness into this universe and disappears.

EYEWITNESS
This place is called Rahah-Kol.

HAKKADOSH
Rahah-Kol, wow!

There is a round foot match floating slowly all about the universe. There are red stars exactly like the sun but it has no effect of hotness, while the walls of the universe illuminate light that is brighter than that of Rahah-Kol’s stars.

EYEWITNESS
In this place, no amount of secret can be hidden and it carries the past. This place can give you answers to all your questions;

HAKKADOSH
Are there others here or I’m the only one here?

EYEWITNESS
You are here by the order of Gabriel and the council.

HAKKADOSH
What council?

EYEWITNESS
You will find out yourself, just relax your mind. Let me tell you something dangerous about this place; you are about to see the past.

HAKKADOSH
(gasps)
Will it kill me?

EYEWITNESS
No, you may lose something.

HAKKADOSH
Like what?

EYEWITNESS
I’m not sure yet, maybe you can never be able to perform astral projection again or something else, but it would be something that would prevent you from asking more questions because some knowledge can endanger your life for eternity. But in order not for this purpose to be destroyed, you’ll lose something within you.

HAKKADOSH
If I may lose the ability to ask questions then I’ll ask all the questions then.

EYEWITNESS
Your choice! I will wait for you here, now stand on one of these plates and expect your answers. I will take you home once it is time so that you would not lose your life in the other world.

HAKKADOSH
Why did you say that?

EYEWITNESS
Many from different worlds have come here same as you, but were carried away and could not go back to tell their stories, so, they were directed to the gate at once.

HAKKADOSH
(dazed)
What makes you think I will not be like them?

EYEWITNESS
Many too were able to go back to tell their stories and today some are preachers of Our Creator. People from your world are strong and the grace of Lord Jesus saves them from sufferings.

HAKKADOSH
My world, are there other worlds?

EYEWITNESS
You have to focus on what you have at hand right now, my friend. Now, step your foot on one of these foot matches.

HAKKADOSH
(nods)
Okay,
(about to step on one of the foot matches)

EYEWITNESS
(holds Hakkadosh)
Wait!

HAKKADOSH
(gasps)
What is it, sir?

EYEWITNESS
I forgot to tell you something very important.

HAKKADOSH
(shivers)
Please tell me.

EYEWITNESS
Do not touch anything you see in the past, stand steadfastly on the plate and do not become afraid of anything you see.
(pauses)
Many things will be given to you based on the type of Bible you read in line with your understanding.

HAKKADOSH
Okay.

EYEWITNESS
Now go.

Hakkadosh steps his feet above one of the foot-match-plates, the plate automatically fixes under the feet of Hakkadosh.

Suddenly, the whole environment changes, everywhere become dark. It appears as if Hakkadosh was present in the past.

From a distance, a faded light sprouts up and a planet appears pale. Gradually, it uncovers itself.

//Continues in the Second Series//

{EXT. GARDEN, OLAM-MACHASHEBETH - DAY}

Gabriel and Hakkadosh are standing under a tree; outside the classes’ areas.

HAKKADOSH
I live in a stubborn world, no one would listen to me; let to say believe whatever I tell them.

GABRIEL
It is not for anyone to believe. The truth is always beneath the surface of the water.

HAKKADOSH
Water?

GABRIEL
Never mind. Just do all you can to tell them, so that the Elders will be at peace and the defaulters will be on their own.

HAKKADOSH
It’s not that easy.

GABRIEL
Do all you can. Don’t fail us like others, don’t change any content, give it as is. Will you?

HAKKADOSH
(nods)
I will.

PHYSICAL WORLD

ONE YEAR LATER

{EXT. GRAVEYARD - DAY}

Hakkadosh's family members and friends are standing above a grave in the graveyard. Hakkadosh's father has died and he has been buried.

ESTHER
(sobs)
Where is the God of our father? How are we going to survive as orphans?

HAKKADOSH
(holds Esther on her shoulder)
We’ll survive, last year we lost mum and this year we lost Dad. I think God has a plan for us. We have to be strong, Esther.

{INT. HAKKADOSH'S BEDROOM - NIGHT}

Hakkadosh is sleeping on his bed. Suddenly, he wakes and sits up quickly.

HAKKADOSH
The greatest truth lies in the greatest secrets.

Hakkadosh sits on his reading table, he grasps a pen, takes a note, opens a page and writes “THE 24 ELDERS”.
