I think it's been more than a decade since there's been anything more than slight ship tease. Seems like they've just given up or moved on or something especially in Ai's case.
And I'm not convinced that it's anything more than ship tease on Sera's part. She barely even reacted in the Kyoto arc, which you'd assume she'd show some reaction if she actually had a serious crush on Shinichi.
What is "ship tease?" It's not a term I'm familiar with.
Just because it hasn't been a recurring thing, as of late, doesn't negate its initial occurrence—it doesn't negate that it happened, to begin with.
Will it lead anywhere (for Ayumi, Shiho/Ai, or Masumi)? Nope. It was still a thing, though.
Like I've said, I'm still not convinced that Sera definitely likes Shinichi in the first place. It's possible sure, but still debatable at best. Most of the "evidence" just seems like classic shipping goggle stuff, where they can all be reasonably interpreted as Sera being a playful tease rather than some decade long unrequited love. Using blushing as evidence is not really that convincing since by similar logic, Ran and Okita must like each other since they blushed around each other recently as well. Not to mention, as I said, Sera's actions in the Kyoto arc aren't really that of a girl that's been in love with Shinichi since she's like 5.
