Please don't misinterpret the MeruxAbiru relationship. It's definitely based on sisterly love as Abi-chan acts as the big sisterly figure that Meru seems to be needing. You know, innocent fun, deep conversations (emails, that is), shopping, holding hands, that king of stuff. Can't really be sure if the friendship comes with benefits or not. It's just that while Abi-chan is the closest friendly person to Meru, Kaere is definitely the one that Meru longs for. So it has to be temporary affair or things are going to get complicated.
