A Fringe and Silent Hill crossover
Welcome To Silent Hill
Olivia Dunham quickly reloaded her hand gun. Her hands shook as she did so, making the task a lot longer than she would've liked it to be. "What the hell are those damn things?" she whispered to a man standing in front of her. "They look like zombie nurses."
"For now, I think that's what we'll have to call them." Harry Mason said, bringing up his hunting rifle. "Alright. I'll distract them, and you run ahead. Try and see if you can get that door open, alright?"
Olivia nodded, and Harry ran into the hall shooting at the nurse… zombie…. Things. The nurses turned, and limped quickly towards him.
Olivia then ran, heading for a door at the end of the hall. She grabbed a hold of the handle, and yanked on it. Nothing. The door was jammed.
Out of fear, frustration, and anger, Olivia yanked on it again. "Come on. Come on. Come on." She said, nearly bursting into tears. She banged on the door with her palms.
Harry's shooting suddenly stopped. Olivia could hear faint clicking noises, indicating he ran out of ammo.
"Olivia!" Harry screamed. "Liv! Help me!" Olivia turned to see the nurses forming a half circle around Harry, forcing him to back into a wall. "Olivia!" he continued to shout.
Olivia's head shot up from her desk. "What? What happened?" it took her a moment to realize where she was. She was in the office of Walter's lab. Peter was the one who awoke her.
Peter put a hand on her shoulder. "Liv, calm down. It was just a bad dream. You dosed off writing your reports from our last case."
"I did?" Olivia asked her mind still fuzzy from sleep. Had it all truly been a dream? "How long was I out?"
"About an hour." Peter said. "I didn't want to wake you, but Astrid needs the desk. And you started thrashing around."
Olivia looked down at the desk seeing that she had knocked over a few things, and broke one of Walter's coffee mugs. "I can fix that." Peter said. "Don't worry about it." he bent down to pick up the pieces. "That must have been one hellish dream."
"I'm not sure." Olivia said. "I can't remember much of it." Why was that? She had only been awake for three minutes. Was she trying to repress it?
Peter placed the broken ceramic from the mug onto the desk. "It'll come back to you. Oh, by the way, Broyles called for you earlier. He wants you to call him back, something about a new case. He didn't seem all too thrilled to talk to me about it."
"A new case." Olivia mumbled. "We just finished this one." But she pulled out her cell phone, and dialed Broyles' number. He answered on the first ring. "Broyles here."
"Hey, it's Olivia. Peter told me you had a new case for us?"
"Have you ever heard of Silent Hill, Agent Dunham?" Broyles asked, getting right down to business. "Its a couple miles out of Richmond, Virginia."
"No I haven't. What's this all about?"
"Strange things have been going on out there. For the past couple of months, people have been going into that town and disappearing. The fortunate ones that end up coming back out go insane. We haven't been able to get any of our guys out there until now. I want you and Peter to go out there and investigate as soon as possible."
Olivia sighed and looked at Peter. "Alright, we'll leave tonight."
"Be careful, Dunham."
"I will." She said, closing the phone.
"So, what's the case?" Peter asked.
"Some place called Silent Hill in Virginia. It's apparently a prime spot for missing person's case, according to Broyles. He wants you and me to check it out."
"From the sound of it, we're going to have to leave Walter here. Disappearances and Walter don't mix."
"Astrid can watch him." Olivia said. "Besides, I don't think we'll be gone very long."
"Where are we going?" Someone asked. Olivia turned to see Walter standing in the door way of the office.
"We aren't going anywhere." Peter said. "Olivia and I have a case to work on. You're staying here with Astrid."
"Oh." Walter said, slightly disappointed. "Where are you going?"
"Silent Hill." Peter replied.
"Oh. Have fun then. Oh Peter, when you get there, could you pick me up a snow globe?"
Olivia raised an eyebrow. "A snow globe, Walter?"
Walter nodded. "Yes. I haven't owned a snow globe in ages. This Silent Hill sounds very familiar to me, and makes me think of a snow globe."
Peter smiled. "We'll try and pick you up a snow globe, Walter."
Olivia glanced down at her watch. "I better get going. I told Broyles we'd leave tonight. Pick me up at my house at Six, alright Peter?"
Peter nodded and Olivia walked out the office door. Right when she was at the lab door, she smiled as she heard Walter ask, "Who broke my coffee mug?"
Olivia walked down a long road. A thick fog surrounded her, clouding her vision. She got the feeling that she wasn't alone, and she could hear someone walking behind her. She turned, but saw no one.
"Olivia!" someone shouted. Olivia turned around again, trying to find who it was that called her name. "Hello!" She called out. Nothing.
"Olivia! Where are you!" Another voice shouted. This one sounded a lot more familiar to her. "It can't be." She thought. "John?" she called out. "John is that you?"
"Liv." Someone whispered in her ear. She spun around and saw Peter standing there. His face was cut and bloody, and he was leaning on his left leg as if something was wrong with his right one. "Good God. Peter what happened to you?"
Peter smiled at her. "We've been waiting for you, Liv."
Another man walked up and stood next to Peter. Olivia's fears were confirmed. John Scott, her former partner, and lover, stood there. He was in the same condition as Peter. "We've been waiting for you, Olivia. We still are. We're waiting for you to join us."
There was a loud ringing in Olivia's ears, forcing her to her knees and to scream in pain. Both mean reached down and grabbed onto the blouse. Olivia looked up and screamed in horror. These weren't the same men. They had turned into bloody demonic creatures.
Olivia screamed again, and awoke in the passenger seat of her car. Peter was driving. She sat up, gasping for breath. Peter looked at her, concern showing in his eyes. "You alright, Liv?"
Olivia nodded. "Yeah, just another bad dream." If it was only a dream, then why were her hands still shaking?
"You feel asleep right after I picked you up." Peter said. "You've been out for four hours."
"How much longer till Silent Hill?" Olivia asked.
"Fifteen minutes. You know what's weird? This town isn't on any of our maps. Luckily our GPS picked it up."
Olivia looked at him confused. "It's not on the maps? I swear to god I saw it earlier." She picked a map up from the floor and looked at it. "Here it is." She pointed at it. "Silent Hill, right next to Tuluca Lake."
Peter looked over at the map. "That wasn't there before. And I checked that map like five times…"
"Peter!" Olivia shouted.
Peter's eyes shot back to the road. He stomped down on the breaks. A little girl stood in the middle of the road, using her arms to shield her eyes from the cars headlights. The car swerved and slammed into a tree.
Olivia grabbed onto the car door handle, and opened her door. She crawled out of the car. "Peter? You alright?"
"Yeah." He grunted. "That girl seemed to come out of nowhere."
Olivia pulled herself up. "I'm going to see if she's alright." Peter did the same. "I'll see if I can call a tow truck. Be careful."
Olivia nodded, and walked back to the road. The only thing left on the road was the skid marks from the tires of her car. There was no sign of the little girl. After a few minutes of searching, she walked back to the car.
"I couldn't find her." She said. "I think she might've gotten off the road when we hit the tree."
Peter snapped his phone shut in frustration. "No cell signal out here." he said, leaning up against the car. "This is just fan-freaking-tastic."
"The map showed a gas station in town. We could see if they have a pay phone." Olivia suggested.
"I'll go." Peter said. "You stay here in case someone drives by." He then put a hand on her shoulder. "I'll be right back. I promise." He kissed her forehead, and walked onto the road.
Olivia then sat down next to the car, and waited.
An hour passed, and Olivia became worried. When she was about to stand up to go look for Peter, a folded up piece of paper landed at her feet. She grabbed it and unfolded it. It was a visitor's map of Silent Hill.
Some of the areas on the map were circled in red ink, which Olivia found strange. She folded it up again, and was about to put it in her pocket. She noticed something written on the back, also in red ink.
We're waiting for you.
Olivia shoved the paper into her jeans, and stood up. She grabbed her gun from the car, and tucked it into her belt. She was going to look for Peter.
When she walked onto the road, a thick fog had begun to form. Olivia swallowed hard, remembering her dream. She brought out her gun and held it tight in her hands. She started walking, and she didn't stop until she reached a rotted wooden sign that said in yellow letters,
