iCarly Silent Hill
Chapter 1: Disappearance
Just an idea I had for an iCarly crossover with one of my favourite horror game series, Silent Hill, please give it a chance. Note: Carly, Sam and Freddie are seventeen in this fic.

It had been a normal day at school, I was sitting in the Groovie Smoothie with Carly and Sam, who had snuck out of detention to join us. I was looking at Carly out of the corner of my eye, we had been dating after I saved her life, we split up several months ago because it seemed to me that she loved me only because I saved her and not actually me. I was wondering if maybe that had been a mistake, although she didn't show it, ever since we broke up Carly hadn't been as cheerful and energetic as usual. In fact, right now she looked exhausted, there were dark shadows under her eyes, however she was still smiling and chatting away to Sam. Just then my phone rang, I sighed and picked it up, unknown number, that was strange, I noticed the others looking at me.
"I gotta go answer this, I'll be right back".
I hurried outside, away from the noise from the packed Groovie Smoothie, and then answered the phone.
The voice that answered sounded vaguely familiar but I couldn't place it.
"Who is this?"
The voice sighed and then revealed who he was.
"Freddie, you know who I am...Does the name John Benson mean anything to you?"
I froze, it couldn't be.
"Yes, listen Freddie, this is important, I need to meet with you".
I was confused, what did this mean, my Dad disappears from my life seven years ago and makes no attempt to contact me or Mom and now he wants to meet with me.
"What's going on, why do you want to meet me?"
"I can't say over the phone, we need to meet, please, you can't tell anyone either, not even your mother, okay".
"...Okay, where do you wanna meet?"
I then listened for his answer.
I remained sitting at the table watching Freddie through the window, his expression seemed to indicate that he knew who he was talking too but wasn't expecting to talk to them. I thought about our break up, I had been thinking about it a lot lately, so much so that I was losing sleep over it. I quickly returned my attention to Sam when I realized she was looking at me, confused.
"Sorry Sam, I was distracted, what did you say?"
Sam smiled and shook her head.
"Carly, can you bear to take your attention away from Freddie for a few minutes?"
"Who said I was...What do you...?"
Sam's expression suddenly became sympathetic.
"I'm sorry to say it but, it's obvious Carls, you're not over him, why don't you tell him the truth?"
"I afraid he won't believe me, he'll probably think I'm still viewing him as a hero".
"But that was only part of it, wasn't it?"
It was then Freddie came back and sat down, he looked shocked by something. Before I could ask Sam's phone rang, she quickly checked it.
"Uh oh, guys I gotta get back or Mr. Howard's gonna find out I'm not in detention, see ya later".
Sam stood up, dropped some money on the table and hurried out the door.
There was an awkward silence as I sat with Freddie, I was unsure what to say to him, so rather than say what I was desperately wanting to I decided to ask him about the phone call he had received.
"So, Freddie...Who was that on the phone?"
His expression was unusual, he looked like he was struggling to make a decision, finally he seemed to make up his mind.
"He said I wasn't to tell anyone but...I can't keep anything from you. Please promise me you won't tell Sam or my mother".
I was surprised at this but I agreed and he continued.
"It was my Dad, I've not seen him in seven years, he said he wants to meet with me about something important".
"What did you say?"
"I've not seen him in seven years, I agreed, but I have to go out of town to meet him".
There was a pause before Freddie finally revealed the location he was going to meet his father.
That night I waited until I was certain Mom was asleep, the last thing I needed was for her to hear what was going on and freak out. The other reason I was leaving at night was that, due to the distance between Silent Hill and Seattle, if I left at night then I would arrive in Seattle at noon the next day. Once I was certain I climbed out of bed and got dressed, grabbing the nearest clothes I could find, a pair of denim jeans, a white undershirt, dark blue T-shirt; white socks and a simple pair of black trainers. Once I was dressed I sneaked out of my room and made it out the front door. To my surprise Carly was standing just outside her apartment, obviously waiting for me.
"Freddie, are you absolutely sure about this?"
I sighed, I had been running the whole thing through my head since the call and had asked myself the same question, however I had now made up my mind.
"I have to see my Dad Carly, it's been so long".
"I know, but...I just have a bad feeling about all this".
"I know what you mean, but...I just gotta go".
I nodded and then, after Carly went back inside I headed down to the parking lot, got in my car and began the long drive to Silent Hill.
It had been three days since Freddie had left for Silent Hill, I had checked out everything I could find about the town and realized, given its distance from Seattle Freddie should've been back by now. Mrs. Benson was going frantic and of course, somehow blaming me. Sam and Spencer were both concerned about where he had gone, I was concerned for a different reason. Unlike them I knew where he had gone and why, which led me to believe something wasn't right. After Freddie had been missing for five days I made up my mind, I was gonna go after him and try and find him. I waited until it was late at night and hurriedly gotten dressed in a pair of black skinny jeans, black T-shirt, black socks and black boots and a red turtleneck jacket. I crept downstairs and, after leaving a quick note for Spencer to find I left and hurried to my car. I got in and drove off heading for Silent Hill, following the same route I'm sure Freddie must've taken days ago. Hours later I was driving along a mountainside road, to my left was a large cliff wall, to the right was a guard rail, on the other side was a long drop, so long I couldn't see anything at the bottom. I continued to drive, I was beginning to feel drowsy when suddenly my car radio went crazy, spewing static. I hit the off button but it still kept spewing static, what the hell, suddenly the radio was the least of my problems. I had to grab the steering wheel as the car began skidding out of control, I tried to correct the car but it didn't work, hitting the brakes didn't work either. I tried to regain control but suddenly the car skidded again and I blacked out.
I regained consciousness and noticed that I was still alive, thank God for seatbelts, I quickly unbuckled the seat belt and opened the car door. I climbed out and looked around, I was still on the mountain road but something had changed, somehow, the whole place had become engulfed in fog. My car had ran into the crash barrier which luckily had held, I was then conscious of the fact that I was hurt, the crash had obviously caused me injury. Luckily nothing serious so I began walking down the road, as I passed a sign I realized I was in the right place.
'Welcome to Silent Hill'
As I continued to walk I noticed something even more unusual, ashes were falling from the sky like snow. I soon reached what looked like a four way intersection, I knew I was in the town now, I looked around, wondering where to go, I had to find Freddie, but where to start. Just then I saw somebody, just obscured in the fog, I hurried to try and talk to the person. They simply turned and ran always staying just where the fog would obscure them, I hurried trying to catch up, this person might be my only chance.
"Hey wait, please!"
They turned a corner and when I reached the corner I found myself in an alleyway. I walked slowly along the alleyway, something didn't feel right. Suddenly, when I turned a corner and headed deeper into the alleyway I heard something, it sounded like a loud air raid siren, suddenly everything froze over, ice coated the walls and ground the snowing ashes had disappeared and also, the darkness in the area made impossible to see more than five feet. I walked slowly along, feeling along the wall, confused and terrified by what was going on. Just then my phone began ringing, I picked it up.
To my shock it was Freddie's voice I heard.
"Freddie, are you okay, what happened, where...?"
"Carly...You've gotta run...You can't fight them...Run!"
The call abruptly ended and the phone burst into static.
I then heard heavy footsteps and I looked up, to my horror there were a group of pale skinned hairless humanoid creatures there, they were roughly the same height as me, but they had no distinguishing traits of facial features, they had emaciated body frames and moved in a twitchy fashion. Then suddenly they shrieked and began running towards me, I panicked and began running back through the alleyway, desperate to escape. To my horror, about halfway back, a large glacier had appeared and blocked off the alleyway, I turned around as the group of creatures jumped and latched onto me, their bodies were ice cold and I fell to the ground, as I struggled I found myself losing consciousness, I thought about Freddie, he was in trouble, I struggled against the creatures again, but it was feeble and I soon blacked out.
End of chapter, Freddie has gone missing and Carly's trying to find him only now she has been attacked, what will happen next, wait and see. Hope you enjoyed this chapter, read and review please.
