Ok, I'm very sad to say, that this is the last chapter. Yeah. I'm really going to miss writing for this story. I'd really like to thank anyone who's reviewed so far, anyone who'll review this chapter and anyone who actually reads these authors note thingies. You're all awesome! And, for anyone who cares, yes, I'm ending this on the 10th chapter. Anyway, enjoy the last chapter! Oh, and by the way, something has recently been brought to my attention; I've been spelling Cristabelle and Alyssa's names wrong. Cristabelle's name is spelt Cristabella and Alyssa's name is spelt Alessa. And I figured out that Anne's name is spelt Anna (you know, the girl from the end of chapter 5 and the beginning of chapter 6?) and that Sharron's name is spelt Sharon. Sorry! But, hey, at least I finally got it right, right? Ok, so, this note's running kind of long, so, without further ado, please enjoy the final chapter of Me and My Friends in Silent Hill.
I woke up, and rubbed my head. Goddamn, how many times am I going to get knocked out in this town? I thought. I sat up, and looked around. The place didn't look like f-ked up Silent Hill anymore. I was the only one awake so far. I got up, and walked over to the railing. I looked down, and what I saw made my blood freeze; amongst the massive amounts of blood, guts, and dead bodies, I saw Pyramid Head. And he was looking directly at me. Then I saw something that I thought I would never see in my lifetime; he gestured for me to come down. I looked behind me, incase Maggie was playing a prank on me again. She was out cold.
Things were surprisingly quiet in the old church. I saw that even Dahlia Gillespie was unconscious. Alessa was nowhere to be seen. I looked to the balcony opposite mine, and saw that Rose and Sharon were both asleep. It was just me and him.
I looked down. Pyramid Head gestured for me to come down again, this time seeming impatient. I wanted to say, "What do you want?" or something like that, but I didn't have the nerve. Instead, I surprised myself by climbing down the ladder, and turning to face him. He still had the spear, but the Great Knife was nowhere to be seen.
Slowly, Pyramid Head opened his hand, and dropped the spear, much to my surprise. Then, he reached up, and took his helmet-thing off.
You know, you'd be surprised at how fast your image of someone can change; one minute, I was staring at a masked-murdering monster, the next, I was staring at a very ripped, very cute guy.
He had Brown hair so dark, it was almost Black, and piercing Blood-Red eyes. And he, was, HOT! He easily made my top ten.
"Surprised?" he asked, smirking. I nodded, and almost fainted; not because his voice was somehow smooth and rough at the same time, but because he talked. And he smiled. Well, he smirked, but still.
"I thought so," he said. "Wha-," I tried to say, but I couldn't get the words out. I had so many questions that I didn't know where to start. I may have mentioned it before, but I'll say it now incase I didn't: I'm not exactly a Pyramid Head fangirl; I thing he's pretty cool and all, but, unlike some people, I wouldn't die for him, or let him rape and/or kill me like some people.
"You and your friends aren't supposed to be here in Silent Hill," said Pyramid Head bluntly. And then I scared myself silly by saying, "Well, no shit Sherlock. Damn, did you just figure that out?" If looks could kill, I'd have dropped dead on the spot.
"I have a few questions for you," he said though gritted teeth. "Back atcha'," I replied. I had to wonder if I had a death wish or something. Very impatiently, he said, "Ok, fine; I'll answer one of your questions every time you answer one of mine." "That's fair," I said. Sounding (somewhat) in control of his temper now, he said, "First, how did you get here?" I took a deep breath, and said, "Well, it's kind of a long story. Okay, so, you know how there's a game series and a movie based off this town?" He nodded slowly. "Okay, well, I entered a contest for four to tour the real thing, and I won. Hence, me and my friends in Silent Hill. Anyway, Alessa or whoever walked out in front of our car and the driver tried to avoid her, but we crashed." Oddly enough, that sounds kind of like the way Harry Mason got here in the first game; Alessa walked onto the road and he crashed. Weird…
"Okay," I said, "Now for my first question; what, exactly, is your name?" I'd been wondering that since I first saw him in the second game. After a short pause, he answered, "I don't remember my name. When we were created by Alessa, we weren't given names. Though I am known to many as simply Pyramid Head." I nodded. So, he didn't remember his official name. Okay then. Well, at least now I know.
"Now my next question," he said, "Are you afraid?" "Kind of," I admitted. He snorted, "Typical." I nearly punched him, the bastard. Though, I did give him one of those If-Looks-Could-Kill looks. Two can play at that game.
"Okay, now I get to ask my next question; why do you kill people?" He seemed to be expecting this, and answered, "I only kill enemies of my creator, Alessa. If someone seems to be a threat, I terminate them." I nodded slowly. It made sense that he'd protect the person who created him. But what about the others? What would happen to them? Almost as if he read my mind, he said, "The others are failures; they kill mindlessly, like those who were slaughtered in this church. If they killed Alessa, they'd never know the difference." He said the word 'others' as if it left a bad taste in his mouth. Then, an idea popped into my head; did Pyramid Head like Alessa? Whoa. That would explain why he wants to protect her…
"Okay, now for my final question," said Pyramid Head. I mentally sighed with disappointment; I had more questions to ask him. "Do you want to go home?" he asked. "Yeah, of course," I said. I was mildly surprised; wouldn't the answer be obvious? Of course I wanted to go home. Sure, my mom can be a bitch, my dog chews everything, and school, well, we all know that school sucks on ice, no matter where you go, but I wouldn't want to go away forever. What would my mom think?
And my friends all had parents, brothers and sisters… Oh shit, we never told them where we were going. Damn, there was probably a police investigation and everything. F-k.
"Well?" said Pyramid Head. "Huh?" I asked, snapping out of my daze. "You out of questions or something?" he asked, raising an eyebrow. "Oh. Um, well, there's one more thing I want to know." Of course there's more than one thing, but if I can only ask one more question, then this one's top-priority. "Now that Alessa's had her revenge on the town, will things go back to normal, or will they stay like this?" I asked. After a pause, he said slowly, "I'm not sure. It's up to Alessa whether or not things return to normal. But if this alternate version disappears, then we'll all revert to our original forms." "Original forms?" I asked, confused. "All of Alessa's creations were once normal people, like you and your friends up there," he explained. I nodded, mystified. "Some were changed more than others; I look pretty much the same, except that I'm now much stronger." Wait, that was all she changed? So, he already looked like this? Wow, Alessa's got good taste in guys. Though, I had to wonder what would happen to Alessa. Would she just disappear or what?
"You must not tell anyone of this meeting," said Pyramid Head. I nodded. Pyramid Head probably isn't a good person to say no to. "Goodbye," he said. He then turned, put his helmet back on, picked up his spear, and walked away. "Bye!" I called after him. After he walked out the door, he disappeared entirely.
"Ugh, what happened?" I heard someone moan from the balcony. I looked up, and saw that Maggie was awake, and everyone else was waking up. Dahlia sat up on the steps, looking confused. Then she saw the bodies, and began saying something. Everyone in the balconies climbed down. No one asked why I was already down.
"So," said Lilly, "what now?" Before I could answer, Sharon looked at Rose and asked, "Can we go home now mommy?" "Sure sweetie," answered Rose. As we walked by the still hysterical Dahlia, who was saying, "Why was I left alive?" Rose said, "A mother is god in the eyes of a child." Dahlia looked perplexed.
As we walked down the street toward Rose's van, Cybil asked, "So, where are you kids going?" I told her the name of the state we're from (A/N Ha! I'm not telling any creepy perverts where I live!). Cybil whistled, "That's a long way away from here. How'd you get here anyway?" I told her that I won a contest to tour Silent Hill (thankfully, she didn't ask why I entered) and that we took a plane to a nearby town, then we were driven the rest of the way. "I think you can figure it out from there," I finished. She nodded.
As we continued to walk, it occurred to me that in the movie, it turned out that everyone was already dead. It's like, you have to die to enter alternate Silent Hill, and when you enter f-ked up Silent Hill (or the church) its possible to, well, die again. That was both just plain messed up and very, very creepy. Well, that's Silent Hill for ya.
We reached Rose's van. Sharon looked at us and gasped. I looked down. I was (slightly) glowing white, and I was dissolving into golden sparkles from the feet up. I looked at my friends, and saw that the same thing was happening to them. Lilly and Jamie were hysterical. Maggie was spitting out a steady stream of cuss words. I turned to Rose, Sharon and Cybil, and said, "Well, I guess this is goodbye." I then dissolved completely. Light. Then darkness.
I saw light all around me. There was a certain sense of flying for a moment. Was I dead? Then, the light disappeared and I dropped onto something hard. I looked around, and gasped; I was in my kitchen! And it did not look like it belonged in alternate Silent Hill Then, I saw three glowing gold objects suddenly appear and condense. The glow dispersed, and my friends dropped onto the floor in front of me. We were back! My friends looked around and began screaming with joy. I was just smiling, because the full effect of finally being home hadn't kicked in yet.
I had a thought, then ran to my computer to check the date. It was the same day as when we'd left. I checked the clock. Only 30 minutes had passed. I couldn't believe it. It was only 10:30 am! I looked at my friends, and smiled. We celebrated our Homecoming.
It's about a month after our little adventure. Life had gone on as usual, though we'd vowed never to forget what happened, no matter what. I knew I wouldn't.
My mom had been on a business trip at the time, so I simply told her that I didn't win the contest. She never knew the difference.
The long weekend was long over, replaced by Summer Vacation. It was also my year to choose where we go on vacation. I still couldn't decide. I'd have to choose within the next couple days, or my mom would choose for me.
I'm currently lounging on the couch, drawing Pokemon. My mom called to me from the kitchen, "Hey, Karen! Someone sent you something in the mail!" I was in the kitchen in a flash. In an Anime, there would have been a trail of fire behind me. "WhatdidIget?" I said so quickly that my words were smushed together. I never get anything in the mail. My mom handed me a postcard and walked into the other room.
When I saw the address, I was confused; it was from New York City. I didn't know anyone in New York. I looked at the message. It said:
Hey. Alessa made her decision.
What? PH? I thought for a second, then my eyes widened in shock when I realized who it was from. I smiled in disbelief. My adventure wasn't over. Not quite yet.
"Hey mom!" I called, "I think I know where I want to go for vacation this year!"
Yes, I know; then ending was pretty stupid and corny. And yes, I know I stole the chapter title from one of the games, but I just had to do it. I tried as hard as I could to make this the best (and longest) chapter yet. I think that writing this turned me into a Pyramid Head fangirl. Yeah. Anyway, I decided to do something; this story is now officially the first of a series of 'Me and My friends in' stories. The next one will be Left 4 Dead. If you have any suggestions for other 'Me and My friends in' stories for the series, put them in the reviews or PM me. Please? I promised to use as many ideas as possible! I loved writing this story, and I decided that since I didn't want to end it, me and my friends could have more pretend adventures. Hence, the start of a series. Though, the ones in this story won't necessarily be the only ones; I plan on adding and even subtracting people from these stories, so, yeah. Anyway, I would now like to acknowledge all of the wonderful people who've reviewed this story:

I trust that all (or at least most) of you will review this last chapter. So, please review! Thanx~! You all rock! Oh, and by the way, in case you were wondering, the ending wasn't a lead-in. See ya~!
