I think it was as Elsie herself put it: She was off alone, worried, working hard. Haqua and Keima were messing around doing "inappropriate things".

I thought it had a bit of "little sister jealous her adored big brother now has a girlfriend who he wants to spend time with instead of her" aspect to it. And not just any girlfriend, but Haqua who is Elsie's best friend.

Anyone who has ever dated the best friend of their younger sister knows that whole thing can get complicated.
