We drove for the last ten hours. It seemed that my father missed the road. He checked the map which showed us the shortcut, but it wasn't a shortcut. My father was getting tired and so was I. My mom already slept.
"I'm going to stop here. I'm getting sleepy." said my father.
"Alright." I replied.
I was also tired and I needed a good sleep. My father needed it too, especially since he was driving. My father parked the car and turned it off. He lied on the seat and closed his eyes. I decided to stare at the forest for awhile. The forest was beautiful. The trees began to bloom as spring was slowly approaching. It was colored in beautiful, different colors. Just by looking at it, it created a beautiful feeling of peace and security. Like evil never existed in this world. I stared at it and suddenly I saw only blackness.
I opened my eyes. I wiped them and checked the front seat. They were both gone. My mother and father weren't here anymore. Both of the front doors were opened. I looked outside and that beauty was replaced by heavy fog. I opened the door and stepped outside. I turned everywhere in hope of seeing them, but I couldn't see a damn finger in front of my nose. I never saw a fog this thick.
No one answered. I yelled for a couple of minutes, but no response came back. I was becoming more and more frightened by each minute. An unnatural feeling climbed up my spine. The damn fog created a pressure in my head. I felt like a thousand ants climbed on my back. I turned everywhere and yelled. I returned in the car and took a flashlight. I went back outside. I began walking forward.
I walked for ten minutes yelling and begging for their response. I hoped nothing happened to them. Then I saw something in the fog. I began to ran toward the shady figure in the fog.
"Hey! Hey, you!"
The figure escaped into the forest. I stopped. In front of me stood a big sign.
"Welcome to Silent Hill."
Never heard of this place. Where the Hell was I? I never saw this Silent Hill on the map. I decided to search for help in the town. Maybe my parents were there. But why would they leave me like that on the side of the road? I walked past the sign. The fog was getting thicker. I barely saw anything through it.
I saw something in the fog, like a building. I ran toward it. I walked inside the town. Streets were empty. It was creepy. I decided not to yell. Maybe there was some psychos hiding in this thick fog and preying on the lost. I walked slowly by the buildings and saw light in one of them. I walked toward the light and found myself in front of the cafeteria. I walked inside. I saw a waitress cleaning glasses inside. There was no one else inside.
"Good day, sir. Sit where you like." said the waitress.
I approached her. She looked weird. She was pale as cheese, all skin and bones, but she had cute face and pretty blonde hair.
"Good day. I won't order anything. I'm just looking for my parents. Have you seen anyone walking in here?" I asked.
"Nope, sorry sir. I'm alone the entire day. No one came in here." she replied.
"Oh, okay then. What's with the fog? I've never seen fog as thick as this one. And where is everyone?" I asked, scared by the look of this town.
"Oh, it's always like this in Silent Hill. We are a small community and we tend to keep to ourselves. And the fog is always like that. It's the trademark of this town." she replied.
"Well, it's creepy. Could you give me a glass of water?" I asked.
"Sure. I will bring the water from the storage. We only have hot water coming out of this pipe." she said and walked in the back.
Five minutes passed and she was still in the back.
Nothing. I went slowly toward the door that led to the storage. Suddenly, the phone rang. I went to it and answered.
I heard only static. Then, a familiar voice pierced the static.
"Son, run from this town. Run and don't turn back."
"Dad?! Is that you, dad?!"
The phone went silent. Nothing could be heard anymore.
I dropped the phone from my hand. What the Hell was that? It was my father, but what was he trying to say? I had to find him. I sat on the small chair to rest my shaky legs for awhile. Another five minutes passed. I completely forgot about the waitress when a thump came from the storage. I heard a scream. I jumped on my feet and ran into the storage. I checked everything in there, but I saw nothing. There was no waitress. There wasn't anyone in there. I became even more frightened. Where was she? She had to be in here.
"Help me." someone said with a whispering voice.
I heard someone flushing water. I followed the sound and found a door that led to a small toilet. I went slowly toward the door. The beats of my heart increased with each step. A cold sweat covered my face. I felt the true fear rising in me. I felt like my brain was between two walls that moved toward each other and slowly pressed my brain. I stopped in front of the door. I knocked on them. No one responded. I slowly pushed the door and they fully opened. I saw horror in front of me. There was written in blood on the wall with big letters, "Silent Hill, Hell on Earth". I saw a waitress's shoe in the toilet which was covered in blood. The entire wall was written with blood with smaller letters. "Run away", "I saw the true face of evil", "This town is the gateway to the other world", "Humanity is doomed", "They will drink the blood of our newborns", "Their God is real and He will bring us nothing but destruction and pain". There was dozens of these writings.
I walked out of the toilet. I was scared like never before. My breathing was becoming heavier, my vision was blurred. I passed out.
I opened my eyes. I saw the light flickering. A fly flew around the bulb. Then, she touched the bulb and the heat killed the fly. It fell on my head. I removed it and stood up. The world was somehow different. I saw no walls. There was only rusty, iron fence. The floor beneath was also of the same material. And the ceiling too. Where was I now? What happened? I heard a knock. I turned toward the toilet. Another knock came. The door began to open slowly. When they fully opened, I saw her, the waitress. But it wasn't her, not anymore. She looked like a monster. She was completely naked, her skin was like that of the iron that surrounded me. She had cuts all over her body. She had no lips and her teeth were rotten and black. Her tongue hanged from her mouth. It was somehow longer with small spikes coming out of it. Her eyes were red, madly red. She had no tits, someone cut them off. Or maybe she did it to herself?
She began to slowly walk toward me. I ran toward the door, but they were locked. I ran toward the other door, but they were locked too. I saw no other way out. I tried to break through the door. They were made of iron, so I didn't even made a dent in them. She was getting closer. She growled with each step. She was now in front of me. She raised her hand and swung it toward me. I dodged the attack and pushed her with my entire strength. She fell on the floor and I jumped over her and ran toward the toilet. I walked inside and saw a hole in there. The waitress stood up and walked toward me. I saw no other way but to jump in that hole. And I jumped.
I fell into the water. I swam toward some platform in the middle of the big room. I climbed on it. Light illuminated the room. I looked up and there wasn't any hole there anymore. I shivered from the cold. Then, I saw something moving beneath the surface. I covered my eyes with my hands. What horrors lurked beneath the surface? I lied down on the cold floor. Something climbed onto the platform. I was too afraid to look. That something gently touched me.
"Wake up, my son. Wake up."
I removed the hands from my eyes. I saw my mother. I stood up and saw my father driving the car.
"Good morning, son. Hey, we just reached some town called Silent Hill. I can't see anything through the damn fog." said my father.
"Noooo!!! Don't go there!!!" I yelled.
I jumped on my father and he lost control over his vehicle. We smashed directly into the tree. All three of us flew out through the windshield. It seemed like time slowed. I saw my mother breaking her skull on the tree. I heard my father's bones cracking as he rolled over the floor. And just before I smashed my head into a rock, I saw a little girl waving to me.
