This Is A Test

Charlene grew up in the same complex as I did, but we really didn't know each other well back then. I went back to visit the old hood and she was there visiting as well. We reconnected and found we had a lot in common, so I asked her to dinner that night. In the middle of our date together, three of her girlfriends showed up and joined us, uninvited. They all seemed to be hitting on me and one even started rubbing my thigh under the table. I told Charlene either they had to go, or I would. She then told me it was a test to see if I really was interested in her, or if I would cheat. I don't need jealousy and mistrust before a relationship even starts.
