"I do not have a crush on Elsie Crane, nor am I in love with her Vera." The notion of love was in fact purely a social construct that consists of ideals perpetuated by mass media and exist as societal norms. Love was not something Isla played into and never would. "Just because we had sex doesn't mean that there are feelings involved." Just because she thought about Elsie during inappropriate times and had the occasional dream did not mean she had feelings for the older woman. Elsie certainly didn't have feelings for her. Playing with Isla's hair for twenty minutes post-coitus and tracing every curve of her body during did not mean Elsie cared for her outside of their friendship.
