Pick Your Own Path: Silent Hill

Steadying yourself, you hoist the dagger high, connecting with the center of the grey demon. It's momentum causes the knife to cut a long jagged edge through most of its body. Not wasting any time, you pounce on the wounded demon, stabbing it dozens of times. Satisfied that it is dead, you rest, panting. Mournfully, you regard the discarded flesh of your kid, lying in a heap nearby. After burying what pieces of him you could find (and bring yourself to carry), you set out of Silent Hill as fast as you can. The fog and gloom make this place creepy, demons or not.

Arriving at your truck, you find it functional, if a bit dented. You start up the engine, and begin the trip home. The fog becomes so thick you have to drive in first gear. You chug along at this pace for hours, but the fog never lifts enough for you to see. After six hours, and still no letup in the fog, you get out of your rig. Waving away the fog in an attempt to see something, you make your way to the side of the road. The fog does seem a little bit clearer over here, you can make out a town down the hillside. Figuring you'll get some assistance and information about this bizarre weather, you start towards the town. You think you can even see someone waving down at the edge of the town square. Someone who looks a bit like you.
