True Story of Ben Drowned

I see you have come here to find out the real truth of how I got like this, am I correct?

Well here is my story. My name was…

Can’t believe I’m about to say my true name even though the last name reminds me of my damn dad!

I’m sorry, did I scare you? I’m sorry. I tend to get like that whenever someone wanted to hear my story. Anyway, my name was Benjamin Blake. I was just a normal kid with a perfect family.

It all started way before I was “drowned” and before my dad lost his job. I love to play Legend of Zelda games. The characters on that game were like friends to me since I couldn’t make any friends for some reason. People wouldn’t come near our house cause every time my dad lost a job, he sometimes takes his damn anger out at us and most of the time, he would beat me up and wishing that I was born a girl and not a boy.Β The job that he had currently paid him a lot.

While I like to stay in my room and play my games, I already have my future planned out. When I grow up, I wanted to be a video game creator.

One day, my little sister, Molly, disappeared. Both of my parents were upset wanting her to come back home. Then my mom got very sick so she had to stay in bed to get better.

When my dad came home, he was drunk again cause he lost another job. So he came up to my room opening the door.Β I was playing the new game Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask. I was almost done with it yet my dad grabbed my left arm saying that were gonna go for a walk so I put the game on pause and went with him.

After walking for an hour, we came up to a lake. There were men there dressed in dark cloaks, I couldn’t see their face. I got both confused and scared. I wanted to run away but my dad grabbed my arms and held me under water saying that I have met with a terrible fate. I opened my mouth to let the bubbles out which was a huge mistake cause the water went into my mouth then into my lungs causing them to start burning my eyes and they popped out of my head.

After I stopped breathing and sank to the bottom of the lake, I heard chanting. When I woke up, my soul was trapped in the game I had on pause. I couldn’t get out. My eye socket were pitch black with red pupils blood poured out where my eyes used to be.

I looked around, noticing that I was wearing Link’s outfit but I was different. I moved my head around my body to check for any scars until I flinched badly feeling three sixes on the top part of my back. I tried to get out but failed.

So now, whenever you play the game, if you drown the character or delete the file Ben, I hope you are prepared to see me coming out of the game and pulling you into the water drowning you. After you die, I will take your heart out of your chest and eat it right in front of your dead corpse for all eternity. You will always remember my eyes that will forever haunt your soul.

    4.5 out of 5…

    • Alexandros Cubby Doane

      What?! How? Did you even read this?

      • Simon

        4.5 out of 5 is the score this story had when I first wrote the comment.

  • Neil

    Perfect family…… Rly?

  • teresa robinson

    Ummm trollpasta?

  • MissMe123

    This had a lot of potential to be good, but it seems hurried,with the chopped up ending. Try expanding it a bit… Let yourself loose. You’re trying too hard here, imo.

  • Tobias erin rogers

    I love this story .

  • Haylee

    This should have a sequal, tbh. It sounds a little third person, tbh. But still really good

      It’s a prequel… The original is Ben Drowned..

  • LotusFaun

    This is too cliche. So many unanswered questions about their actions of how and why they do those things. For example, whatever happened to the missing sibling, the supposed haunted cartridge, etc. Not enough details to the story.

    • 24Victoria Nguyen

      I agree with you, but this story might have been rewritten by a fan of the original story. You know how they are, always leaving out important details and adding their own ideas and most importantly, cliches. I pray to god no 12 year old die hard fans see this reply and threaten to kill me again.

    • Jack Alyxander

      It’s already based on a creepy pasta, its a prequel, technically

  • 24Victoria Nguyen

    Every time I play Majora’s Mask in public I always hear at least one fangirl mention Ben. It’s starting to get annoying (>_<)

  • Brandon Barrett

    Won’t lie I really hated the story. Reason 1 it was a fan pasta so it really wasn’t original, Reason 2 it didn’t make much sense to me why a EVIL BEING would give a sheit if people heard it’s story

  • Daniel Di Benedetto

    This was written quite badly, and made no sense whatsoever. The father’s random affiliation with the occult wasn’t explained in any way, and why Ben ended up in the game wasn’t either. They cursed him and put him in a game? Why? Just for fun? Why would the father even care? If he was angry at work and wanted to drown his son… why not just do that? Why would he be like “Hey, random Satanists, want to trap my son in a video game?! Lol! I’m gonna’ drown him first though!” Also, when Ben ended up in the game, why did he suddenly decide to be a murderer? Zero continuity, man.

    I ha heard this story before from a urban legends video

  • Ciara M.

    I’m sorry but… Really? This story has way too many cliches. But, what makes me dislike it is the fact that the origin of BEN is supposed to be a mystery. That is what makes it interesting. The original story of Majora’s Mask was all that was needed. It didn’t need a sequel or prequel.

    1/5 There’s nothing creepy about this soulless backstory for Ben (a character I admire for his mystery) that sounds like an angsty diary entry.

  • Alexandros Cubby Doane

    … What? Its hard to understand the way this is written.

    This kinda ruined the original for me as this is poorly written. Also, I don’t understand all the comments with people saying “omg im too scared to test it!” It’s not real! I’ve even tried it!

  • JaneTheReader
