“I think I did but I don’t remember for certain, to be completely honest,” Krystal replied back. Judging from the way she looked ready to bolt at a moment's notice, it was likely she was more interested in running away rather than than trying to trap it instead.
Irritated, I immediately turned towards where I had found the store entrance while salvaging. While it could have been worse- the woman could have ran back to the door to check if it had indeed been shut-the only safe option left was to retreat once more. Before I could continue further, there was a final loud crash followed by the sound of a door being broken down; the creature had finally forced its way inside.
In the end it didn't matter, because immediately after the world itself began to change.
At first nothing seemed different. A loud siren in the distance began to go off, echoing across the town while leaving a somewhat ominous feeling behind as the noise died down. As the sound faded, the sunlight dimmed away as well, darkening the area. To accompany the darkness, the store seemed to age rapidly as everything began to either rust away or become destroyed beyond use. A few of the overhead lights even fell down, the cables used to support them becoming frayed. As the transformation finally completed, there was a dead silence that hung in the air- the monster had disappeared.
“You…you’re seeing this, right? I’m not going completely loony?” Krystal said, breaking the silence as we both registered what had just happened before our eyes. “What the HELL is going on here?!”
“I think 'hell' would indeed be the proper word for it,” I remarked, trying to sound unfazed. In reality, I was starting to grow curious. Was this a normal event for the town? If so, I should have been able to remember something so strange, even though I had hardly been a few years old the last time I saw Silent Hill. Still, there was a feeling in the back of my mind that I should know just what was going on. “I think it's safe to say that we shouldn't stay here, though. This place looks like it's ready to fall apart any minute.” I took a side glance over at the snack foods, but noticed with disgust that they too had fallen victim to whatever transformation had happened to this world; they now appeared rotten, and some bags were opened revealing long-expired goods.
Whatever had managed to change the area though had managed to somehow leave our items unfazed. Opening my tote revealed that everything still appeared to be in the same condition they had been before storing away. While running a quick inventory, my hand brushed a folded sheaf of paper- the map I had used to get here in the first place. “Completely forgot I had this thing,” I remarked, pulling the map out to take a closer look. On the opposite side, there was a rough outline of the town with important buildings labeled. While places like a hospital, the police station, and even a school were marked, I was unable to identify any apartments or even a library anywhere... there was a sole church, however.
Realizing that I had probably been staring at the map for a while and still had someone waiting nearby, I offered the paper to Krystal so she could have a quick look as well. “You may be able to find your way out of town if you memorize this, though I can't promise that's exactly accurate. If the rest of this place is run-down as well, some areas may be blocked. I'll need that back, so hope your memory is good. That, or you can follow me to check out a place or two and I can personally escort you out of here."
