I need help creating a thesis and an outline on Scary story. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. A cold night (Scary story) "A sound in the bedroom woke me up". It was dark, but I could see outside through the thin curtains. “A young man walked across the bedroom window slowly and quietly”. At that time, I was living just outside of Leicester in a rented house with my husband. We had just married, and it was three months before the incident. That night I went to bed earlier than my husband and fell asleep.

The man was wearing a red jacket and was built like my husband, so there was no purpose to worry because my husband had a red jacket too. So, I thought he was probably walking slowly not to wake me up. My eyes were exceedingly sleepy, but then it struck me, \why is he is wearing the red anorak in the bedroom?’. I had left my husband that evening down stairs watching television, and he was not going out that evening.

Overwhelmed by my realisation and fear that it could not be my husband, I stretched my hand across the bed and felt another person across the bed. My heart began racing so fast it almost jumped out of my chest. The confusion “either Chris, my husband, was in bed or walking across the room” because he could not have been both. This made my mind race from the confusion.

“Who was the other person?” This person standing then moved to the bed side I was on and pulled the bedclothes back on my side. Still not sure if he was my husband, because he looked the same size as Chris, I sat there not knowing whether to scream or sit. A thin chill from the cold hit me, but I was wearing a thick night dress that shielded from the cold.

He then stood on my side holding a duvet in his hands as if getting into bed. Then he realised I was actually awake and had now seen him standing close to my bed. Suddenly he dropped the duvet and ran downstairs making loud noises. All of a sudden I screamed and Chris my husband woke up (yes, it was my husband in bed). It took him some time to understand what had happened.

At first, Chris thought I was experiencing a terrible dream but eventually leapt out of bed and ran to the workshop and grabbed a hammer! He went downstairs and found the door open, and nobody was in sight. Chris had forgotten to lock the door, and that is how the mugger came inside the house. We had no phone in the bedroom so we went to the living room to call the police.

My purse was lying in the middle of the room opened with the few pounds that were in it missing. We phoned the police and half an hour passed without them coming. At first we thought that they had ignored us, but then a policewoman and policeman responded to our call. They told us that there was a patrol car near and because we had phoned quickly they had arrested a guy. He was seen running down the road when the police apprehended him. It was later that we learned the suspect had committed similar offences in the area. Even more worrying was learning that he went to the bedrooms where there were women. On one occasion, he had even assaulted a woman after she discovered him in the house. At the end, we were more at peace knowing the suspect got charged and given a custodial sentence.
