Ben opened his eyes to the sound of his mother's voice. He yawned and rubbed his eyes. He lazily got out of his bed and started to walk from his room into the kitchen.
Ben was a 16 year old boy. He was quite short for his age. He was always picked on for that. He had pure blonde hair, with blue eyes. A lot of people would call him 'Link' because he looked like the hero that lived many years before him. He felt special because he was being called after the young man that fearlessly fought monsters and kept villages safe.
Ben reached the kitchen to find his mother staring at him. She had a stern look on her face. One he had seen quite a bit for the past few weeks. Ben looked down at his feet.
"That's the fourth time this week you slept in. Aren't you using your new alarm clock?" His mother sighed. "I won't be here forever, Ben. I need your help, and when it's time to get up, that you do so!" Ben looked up at his mother. Her hand
The story of BEN Drowned Chapter 2Ben woke. His face was coated with sweat. He had that dream again. The dream he was drowning. Slowly. Painfully. A strange black liquid was leaking from his eyes in his dream. Since he never learned to swim, he usually had these dreams when something was troubling him, but not one so...odd. It wasn't like the other dreams. The other dreams he knew were dreams. This one felt so real... He got out of his bed and sat at his desk to calm down.More Like This
"I-I need to get over my fear..." He said to himself. "S-so I can stop having these dreams...." He had asked his mother how to, but she, as well never learned. His mother had almost drowned due to playing too close to a lake when she was a kid. His father was playing with her at the time, and saved her. So she was terrified as much of water as Ben was. His father disappeared mysteriously several days before Ben was born. A tear fell from his face onto his desk.
"I wish I could have met you, Da-" He stared in horror at the tear that just fell from his

Ben's eyes widened as Sam grabbed Ben's shoulder. He let out a muffled cry.
"James, come and help me." Sam said. James' eyes widened.
"You said I only needed to get him here." James said, his eyes narrowed. Ben's eyes welled with tears. His best friend, his only friend helped this monster of a person try and kill him.
"Do you want your family to be killed if I fail to kill him?" James lowered his head. "Didn't think so." James went at Sam's side. Sam grabbed Ben's arm, but James hesitated. "Cmon', James! We don't have all day." Sam growled. James narrowed his eyes to small slits. He went up to Sam, and punched him in the stomach, making him release Ben.
"Run!" James cried as he was tackled by Sam.
"Traitor!" Sam screamed. He pinned James to the ground and punched him several times. Ben snapped out of his trance, but did not run. He ripped the tape from his mouth, and pulled Sam away from James. Sam turned around, and since Ben's shoulder was bruised from the stab, made it easy for Sam

"NO! BEN!!!" James cried. His best friend was falling to his doom and he was just standing there?! James struggled to get up, trying to ignore the bruises and his aching bones. He ran to the edge of the cliff.
SPLASH! Ben had fallen into the water. He put his head in his hands. He could not save Ben. He could not swim either, so he would be putting himself in danger as well.
"You fool, James." He said to himself, tears streaming down his face. He had help kill his friend. He sobbed, burying his head in his knees. He thought he was doing something to help his family, but he might have made it worse. He cried, looking down at the water below. He eventually fell asleep.
Ben opened his eyes to reveal darkness. Everywhere.
"I-I'm alive...?" The darkness started to fade, and he found himself at the edge of the cliff again.
"What?!" He yelled out. He walked backwards right through a tree. Walked throu
