This would also explain why Touya was initially slamming the door in her face - he's aware of Haruka's pursuit and not happy about it. At the same time, Haruka obviously had a traumatic experience, so Touya feels compelled to cut Haruka some slack out of friendship.

I mean, remember the very last scene. Haruka drives by Touya's apartment AGAIN, while he's talking to Rina...
Touya isn't going along with Haruka just out of kindness of his heart...
Remember, they are life-long friends, knew each other since kindergarden. An osana-najimi.
He knows he can be somewhat rude to her and get away with it, because they grew up together and are so close to each other.

In a way, I would say, they are probably closer in bond than Touya is to his own girlfriend.
It's a classic "long time friend" vs "current romance" formula seen in billion romance stories.
