As school lets out for summer, Ben is getting his bike while listening to a New Kids On The Block song when [[Beverly Marsh|Beverly]] steps out and asks if he's going to let her pass or if there's a secret password; he promptly apologizes, and clumsily drops his display. Beverly tells him that [[Henry Bowers]] and his cronies are by the west entrance, so he's safe. Curious about what he's listening to, Beverly takes his headphones and puts them on, and after identifying the singers, jokes around with him about being "The New Kid" before introducing herself, though Ben knows her because they're both in social studies, and she signs his yearbook.

A few moments later, Ben is in the library reading about an incident that occurred around easter, when the librarian asks him why he's in the library instead of enjoying the summer. He then notices a red balloon floating through the room and follows it, discovering a trail of eggs leading to the basement. Suddenly a headless boy walks down the stairs towards Ben, who flees, bumping into the elderly librarian. As he leaves the library, Ben is ambushed by Henry and his gang, who take him to a bridge, which they call the "Kissing Bridge", and torture him before Henry pulls a knife and starts carving his name on Ben's stomach; Ben kicks Henry in the crotch, causing him to fall backwards over the bridge and go rolling down the hill. Henry and his thugs give chase, with Henry losing his knife in the process. He orders [[Reginald Huggins|Reginald]] and [[Patrick Hockstetter|Patrick]] to go after Ben while he and Vic search for his knife. Ben races through the river, eventually collapsing from exhaustion at the sewer entrance, where he meets up with [[Bill Denbrough|Bill]], [[Richie Tozier|Richie]], [[Eddie Kaspbrak|Eddie]], and [[Stan Uris|Stanley]]. The four take Ben to an alley, where Richie is left to look after him, while Bill, Eddie, and Stan go to the pharmacy to acquire some supplies with a little help from Beverly, who drops in on them as they are attending to Ben's wound.

2017 film

As school lets out for summer, Ben is getting his bike while listening to a New Kids On The Block song when Beverly steps out and asks if he's going to let her pass or if there's a secret password; he promptly apologizes, and clumsily drops his display. Beverly tells him that Henry Bowers and his cronies are by the west entrance, so he's safe. Curious about what he's listening to, Beverly takes his headphones and puts them on, and after identifying the singers, jokes around with him about being "The New Kid" before introducing herself, though Ben knows her because they're both in social studies, and she signs his yearbook.

Later that day, Ben is in the library reading about Derry's history. He then notices a red balloon floating through the room and follows it, discovering a trail of eggs leading to the basement. Suddenly a headless boy walks down the stairs towards Ben, who flees, bumping into an elderly librarian. As he leaves the library, Ben is ambushed by Henry and his gang, who take him to a bridge, which they call the "Kissing Bridge", and torture him before Henry pulls a knife and starts carving his name on Ben's stomach; Ben kicks Henry in the crotch, causing him to fall backwards over the bridge and go rolling down the hill. Henry and his thugs give chase, with Henry losing his knife in the process. He orders Reginald and Patrick to go after Ben while he and Vic search for his knife. Ben races through the river, eventually collapsing from exhaustion at the sewer entrance, where he meets up with Bill, Richie, Eddie, and Stanley. The four take Ben to an alley, where Richie is left to look after him, while Bill, Eddie, and Stan go to the pharmacy to acquire some supplies with a little help from Beverly, who drops in on them as they are attending to Ben's wound.

The next day, Ben, Bill, Eddie, Richie, and Stan go to the quarry to go swimming, first spitting over the edge of the cliff to see how far it goes, when Beverly unexpectedly joins the five. After a round of swimming, the six relax on the rocks, where the boys watch Beverly as she is sunbathing, but turn away when she turns towards them. Richie looks in Ben's backpack, finding a postcard that he intends to give to Beverly, and a notebook with Derry's history. Ben explains that Derry is different from the other towns he's been to, because people disappear or die six times the national average, with kids being the more common victims. The six then go to Ben's house, where he shows them more of Derry's history, particularly the town's origins, and Beverly exposes his interest in the New Kids on the Block.
