It's a Mystery...
The best mystery story I have ever read is "The Pit and the Pendulum" by Edgar Allan Poe. Poe wrote it as if you were in that man's position. He made it feel like you were staring death in the face like the main character was.
A start for a mystery... okay, here's a start for a half mystery half horror.
STEP. STEP. STEP. This was the sound of Cassey's footsteps as she walked around her house. She was a diabetic and needed to take a walk every night. It was too cold to go outside to walk, so she walked inside. As she passed her large front window, something caught her eye from across the street. A man was staring at her through his window with binoculars. "That's weird," Cassey said to herself. As Cassey continued her walk, the man kept staring at her. For a minute he went away, but then Cassey looked out her window and saw that the man had reappeared OUTSIDE HIS HOUSE. Cassey felt a tingle of fear, but ignored it and continued her walk. About ten minutes later, the man disappeared again, and this time, he reappeared in the middle of the cul-de-sac Cassey lived on. "This just gets stranger and stranger," Cassey said. At last, she had finished her walk and sat down on the couch for a moment to relax. "Maybe that man will leave me alone now," she thought. After another minute or two, she headed to the kitchen to fix her supper. As she passed the front window, she saw the man standing at the beginning of her driveway. Cassey instantly began to panic and became very scared. "This has gone too far," she said, and rushed to her phone to dial 911. She dialed the number and just to be sure, she looked out the window, and saw that the man was now in the center of the driveway. He was too far away and it was too dark to see is face. "What is doing and why?!" Cassey thought.
