A few months ago my fiancé and I had been staying with his mother and her husband. Her husband, has a drinking problem and would always make sexual comments towards me and I would constantly catch him leering at me. I would brush it off, not wanting to cause any problems in the home. I was very afraid for my safety the entirety of our 3 month stay, but I was unsure who to turn to. I thought if I ignored it, maybe it would stop. It did not. One day, the husband was outside when I came outside for a cigarette. It seemed as if he was waiting for me, but I can't be certain. I was home alone except for thier 13 year old daughter , who was inside. He invited me to sit with him at thier patio table, which I did, not wanting to anger him. I was far away from him as I could. He began to describe sick sexual fantasies to me about me and his young teenage daughter. He began to stroke my thigh with his foot. He began to go into detail about how he wanted to rape me, I ran away into the basement. I locked myself down there for about an hour until my fiancé got home. I immediately told him what had happened so we left that day and have not been back since.
