The Great Deception 

(On a not so distant planet, hidden within The Milky Way Galaxy, Planet X aka. Nibiru, the home world of the Annuanaki. A race of aliens that resemble us quite closely with some minor differences. Talks a father/king of thePleiadians and a daughter/princess of the Pleiadians on the day of her arraigned marriage to the Prince of the Annuanaki)

 

Kelala:

“......But father I don’t wish to marry that foolish man, he’s self centered and......foolish!!”

 

Balthazar:

“Kelala, my sweet child, this alliance will be a great victory for our people as well as theirs, so please for mine and your mothers sake, forge this alliance and you both shall inherit the newest developing planet in our solar system.”

 

Kelala:

“Fine father, for the betterment of both our peoples, I will forge this alliance.”

 

(The next day, in the Great Hall of the Annuanaki capital of Jahkahagard, Prince Thane-El and Princess Kelala are about to exchange their wedding vows.)

 

  Annuanaki Priest: 

“We have gathered here today to join, not only the union of two souls but two powerful, royal bloodlines as well. Do you Prince Thane-El take Princess Kelala to be your partner in not only this life but for many to come?”

 

Thane-El:

“I do, forever, for as long as my soul shall shine.”

 

Annuanaki Priest: 

“And do you Princess Kelala take Prince Thane-El to be your partner I’m not only this life but for many to come?”

 

Kelala:

“I do, forever, for as long as my soul shall shine.”

 

Annuanaki Priest:

“Then I hereby pronounce you husband and wife, to rule over planet Terra Nova, the newest in our planetary system. There you shall bring about life and a sustainable environment for future Annuanaki and Pleiadian generations, if the bride or groom shall wish to say any words to your spouse now is the time.”

 

Thane-El:

“I know we barely know each other and we were basically thrown into this by our parents but I’d like to make this work, not only to not disappoint our families but because I think, with time, we could begin to love one another.” 

 

Kelala:

“I’m not entirely sure about this ‘arraignment’ but I’m willing to give it a chance if you are willing.” 

 

 

(The next day, ships, carrying scores of Annuanaki and Pleiadians to the surface of Terra Nova aka. Earth, before humans 1 million years ago, present day Egypt.)

 

 

Kelala:

“This planet is just.....boring, what will we create? It’s all just sand and no life forms as far as I can tell.”

 

Thane-El:

“We’ve only just landed after a very long flight across the Galaxy, can you please just relax, I’ve already commissioned our slaves to build you a bigger and better palace and they’ve almost finished it, they’ve been on world for a couple of years now and look, they’ve already finished the living areas and the rest of the palace should be finished in another day.”

 

(Thane-El says as he shows Kelala a lavish 20-story high marble and limestone palace with two 40-foot purple and green Dragons standing guard watching over the progress of the palace.) 

 

Kelala: 

“It’s ok but they could hurry up, it’s been over a decade and they’ve still yet to finish the palace?!?!”

 

Thane-El: 

“Yes but they’ve already finished the whole city, our Kingdom, it’s just one part of the palace is still being built. It’ll take no time at all for them to finish.” 

 

 

(Twenty years later)

 

(In the Council of the Nine’s chambers, members of the newly formed government convene to discuss the creation of new animal and ‘human’ species to be introduced into the ecosystem.) 

 

(First the discussion of and what to do about the creation of the Leviathans.) 

 

Kassious: 

“They should be confined to the deepest reaches of the oceans and when and if they perish we should create a new world for them to inhabit so if her majesty so desires she can visit her creations. We can call it Purgatory, if everyone agrees on that name.”

 

(Crowd clamors in agreement) 

 

Thane-El:

“Ok, the I’s have it, so it shall be. The leviathans shall be confined only to the deepest reaches of the oceans as to protect them as well as us and when all of the ‘magical creatures’ we created and will continue to create, die they will go to a pocket dimension that our chief scientists will be working on creating, next on the docket is......The discovery of a previously unknown existence of a subterranean species of people living within the surface of our planet, they refer to themselves as Reptilians.”  

 

 

Kelala: 

“They cannot be trusted, I don’t know why but I just feel off about them, they’ve been here all this time and now they want to reveal themselves to us?!??! I think it’s a trap.”

 

 

Eidrye:

“They’ve shown us no signs of hostility though, your majesty, so with all due respect, we can’t just not trust them they know more about this planet than we do and we need their knowledge.”

 

Thane-El: 

NOT to trust them, so the I’s have it and we will discuss making them citizens of our little planet within the next 5-10 years.”

 

Kelala:

regret your decision on this, trust me this WILL blow up in your face!”

 

 

(12 years later)

 

Thane-El:

“Today we, as now three ruling species, come together to sign a treaty into law and......”

 

Kelala:

YOU’RE ALL MAKING A GRAVE MISTAKE, THIS CANNOT HAPPEN, THEY WILL ENSLAVE US ALL!!!” 

 

(Her majesty pleads, as she’s dragged off of the stage by armed guards and escorted back to her chambers.)

 

Kassious: 

“She’s gone mad your majesty, don’t listen to her this’ll benefit us all, in the long run.” 

 

Thane-El: 

“You better hope so Kassious because if this goes sideways, you’ll be the first one I execute for treason.” 

 

Kassious:

“Trust me sire, have I ever lied to you?”

 

Thane-El:

“Ok I am trusting you.”

 

(Less than 24 hours later)

 

(Commotion erupts from The Great Hall, The Reptilians start to slaughter and enslave the townsfolk as they are trying to celebrate this new ‘alliance’, as the fighting erupts both Kelala and Thane-El are drug of of their bed and Thane-El is beaten within an inch of his life while Kelala is held against her will and forced to watch as they relentlessly beat him over and over again. They are then taken to the edge of the Kingdom, of what was then known as Attillan and banished from the place they helped create.”

 

 

Reptilian Soldier:

“If you value your lives and those of your children, the ones we haven’t killed and eaten yet, then I suggest you stay far away from this land, forever!” 

 

 

(Thane-El beheads the Reptilian with a single swipe of his blade and leaves as Kelala sobs furiously behind him, punching him in the back as they figure out what to do next.)

 

Kelala:

“I know we’ve made a covenant when we married each other but I can no longer stand to look at you or be in your presence, we are immortal and I WILL live without you!” 

 

Thane-El:

“I made a grave mistake and I should’ve listened to you, we are immortal and so are two of our remaining children, we must save them from what awaits them if they stay in there with them!”

 

Kelala:

help you again, our children chose their fate when they betrayed us and sided with them! You are no longer my beloved and I am leaving, DO NOT follow me!”

 

(1,000 years later)

 

(Somewhere in the Middle East just outside of Egypt)

 

(Thane-El and Kelala come back to exact revenge and to get their children back, they notice that one another are back, this wasn’t planned, they both just happened to be in the same place at the same time, Thane-El drops to his knees at the site of her, tears come to his eyes and Kelala puts her hand on his shoulder as if to say ‘it’ll be ok’.)

 

Thane-El: 

“I’ve missed you, I’ve never been the same since you’ve left, I’ve created things that should’ve never been, Vampires, Werewolves, Ghouls, All the bad in the world, I’m sorry my love, I’ve been lost without you but we can fix this, we may not be able to stop them but we can save our sons at least.”

 

Kelala: 

“I know you have and I don’t entirely trust you but I do and always have, loved you. Our sons are gone, baby, they fought back 500 years ago and were imprisoned in Purgatory for their ‘treason’, I’m sorry my love they’re gone. We can evade their control if we become human and give up our immortality, that’s why I’m here, I came here to find our granddaughter she’s remained silent but fights back in her own way, she can turn us mortal, will you do this with me?”

 

Thane-El: 

ANYTHING you ask of me, I’ve been without you for over 1,000 years and can’t stand a single second more, so if becoming human with you is something you truly want then I will do as you ask.” 

 

(Together they snuck into the city via the underground tunnel systems and surfaced just beneath Azarial’s shop)

 

Kelala:

“Remain silent my love, I will do the talking, our granddaughter is suspicious of outsiders. She must maintain her cover as to not draw attention from the Reptilian overlords.”

 

Thane-El:

“Ok my love I understand, I will allow you to do the talking I just don’t know if I can contain my excitement, we have a fully grown granddaughter.”

 

Kelala:

“Thane-El, you mustn’t ruin this for us this is the only way to ever be free of the oppression. I will take care of the introductions, just have patience my love.” 

 

(As the ascended the basement steps towards the door Kelala gave the secret knock that Azarial told her to use before entering) (Knock, knock knock knock, knock knock, knock, knock knock) (The door then opened to reveal what looked like an apothecary, filled with many different herbs and potions, the air thick with Patchouly and Jasmine with a hint of Lavender) 

 

Azarial:

(laughter), who’s this young looking stud you got here(laughter), just kidding gramps, I knew she was bringing you, I’m a seer after all, that’s how I’ve managed to stay ahead of these scaly bastards for so long.”

 

  Thane-El:

“Well I see where she gets her spunk from, she’s definitely our grandchild(chuckle), so I hear you can turn us mortal?”

 

 

Kelala:

I’D do the talking?”

 

Azarial:

“It’s ok grandmother, grandfather is just excited, I’ve been waiting to finally meet him, he doesn’t seem as bad as you painted him out to be, maybe a little reckless but not cold and calculated as you so described.”

 

Thane-El:

“Your grandmother, wasn’t lying, not really, I’ve done very many things I’m not proud of and have been cold and calculated, when the subject calls for it. We need your help though and have come for a certain potion to turn us mortal, can you help us?”

 

Azarial:

“Yes grandfather, I can help you but are you both sure this is what you want? There’s no going back once you have taken the potion, you’ll NEVER be immortal again. There is one side effect though, you, grandfather, will always have memories of the past and all of your lives to come, whereas grandmother, you will have only the slightest memory of your past lives I’m sorry but that’s the price you must pay for giving up a life of immortality.”

 

Kelala:

“I can live with that no problem.”

 

Azarial:

“Grandfather? How about you, can you live with this?”

 

Thane-El:

“For your grandmother, I will do anything, yes, I can live with the side effects.” 

 

(Azarial pulls two blueish purple vials from the top shelf and hands them to her grandparents, Kelala drinks hers first in one big gulp, Thane-El hesitates but reluctantly takes it down in one gulp)(Just as soon as they ingested the potions the door to the apothecary busts wide open and two Imperial guards come in brandishing swords they take Azarial away, she puts up a fight killing one of the guards with his own weapon the other hits her over the head with the pommel of his sword knocking her unconscious)(Thane-El jumps at the guard in an attempt to save his granddaughter but is stabbed in the gut as a result, Kelala tries to use her power but nothing happens, they’re now mortal and their powers no longer work on command, sparks emanate from her fingertips but nothing more.)(The guard laughs and knocks her unconscious as well.)(When they come to, all three of them are on a stage of sorts positioned in the town square, Thane-El is badly hurt and barely conscious, Kelala and Azarial look on in horror as they untie Thane-El and prepare him for public execution.)

 

Reptilian King/Zarius:

“Thane-El, old friend, it’s been a long time, how have you been this past 1,000 years? You haven’t aged a day, not looking so good right now, why aren’t you healing? Have you made a mistake and become mortal?You fool now you’ve made it easy for me to get rid you and your whore wife. I’m sorry that I have to kill your granddaughter though, she really was an asset, pity.”

 

Thane-El:

”Fuck you, Zarius. Why don’t you just give up this charade and just kill me already I’m tired of hearing you flap your rotten mouth, just do it already you ugly fucking waste of space. I should have never trusted you, I should have listened to my wife when she said you’d bring about our destruction.”

 

Zarius:

(manically laughs)you should be thanking me I’m killing you first, sparing you the pain of watching your loved ones die before your eyes....”

 

(Just then Kelala’s power becomes untenable and she obliterates the three guards standing over her and Azarial with one big burst of blue flames, she almost makes it to Thane-El when Zarius grabs her by the throat.)

 

Zarius:

HOW DARE YOU!!!! You killed my best fighters, now YOU die first, I’m sorry old friend I know I said I’d spare you the pain but your whore wife has forced my hand.”

 

Kelala:

”I’m sorry my love I just can’t watch you die, I love you SO MUCH, I’m sorry. We will be together again I promi......”

 

(In one swift motion Zarius snaps her neck, she falls to the ground lifeless, blood pouring out her mouth.)(Just then Thane-El’s power returns, he starts to heal but slowly, he rises to his feet in an attempt to exact revenge but just as he does a knife is put to his granddaughter’s throat and she is dead)(Thane-El has now watched as the only family he had left has be eliminated right in front of his eyes, he falls to his knees, sobbing in anger and sadness.)

 

Thane-El:

“End me you fucking coward,come on what are you waiting for, come on, DO IT!!!!!!!!

 

(Zarius grabs Thane-El by the throat and with a flick of his wrist he ends his suffering.)(The crowd of people and Reptilians alike look on as the three are laying lifeless on the ground blood everywhere.)(Just then an earthquake rocks the whole city forming sinkholes, swallowing up buildings and people, water shoots out of these holes flooding the city as people run for their lives.)(The stage on which the all stood starts to break apart and fall into the hole, Zarius screams out for help but no one is there and as they all tumble down the seemingly endless abyss Zarius looks over at Thane-El’s lifeless corpse and there’s a smile strewn across his face, a final dying show of power.)
