Ben X

Ben is different. His life is full of strange rituals. He seems to live in a universe of his own making, one that is set, for the largest part, in the world of online computer games. But in the real, unforgiving environment of his technical school, life turns out to be a daily hell, with two guys making his life almost literally impossible. So Ben comes up with a plan. A one word plan: murder! Until his internet buddy Scarlite enters his real life. Something that was not part of the plan.
