"Daddy?" says a child's voice. It sounds like the child is several feet away from the phone.

"No!" you exclaim, "Listen! I have a baby and its missing, I am in a fire station in a place called Silent Hill. I need help, is there a grownup there?"

"I know where your kid is, man," sings the child with the back-and-forth meter of a nursery rhyme, "I threw it in the garbage can."

A click indicates they have hung up. Horrified, you stare at the receiver for a few moments. You jab at the phone buttons, but can get no outside line. Your attention is stolen by a movement in the shadows. A weird humanoid silhouette shimmers in-and-out of invisibility. Shrieking
hysterically, it bounds towards you.
