Where is this even coming from. I don't think any girl other than Ran has shown any interest in Shinichi/Conan post-345...
Here's the most relevant part from that section:
DCW Wiki wrote:On several occasions, such as the dramatic conclusion of the Online Client Case, Masumi has displayed an intensely affectionate air towards Conan which somewhat transcends a mere "big sister" relationship. In fact, it is hinted during the Romance Novelist murder and in the movie Dimensional Sniper that she may actually be entertaining a crush on Shinichi/Conan and hopes of initiating a closer relationship with him. However, the actual level of her feelings for him is yet to be publicly revealed.
Relevant Manga Pages:
File 800, Page 14
Shinichi/Conan (blushing, bewildered): "Whoa!?"
Masumi (blushing, crying): "Yes!! I'm so glad you're alright!"
Shinichi/Conan (no longer blushing, bewildered, internal monologue): Why is she even here?
File 876, Page 11
Masumi (to Shinichi/Conan, blushing): "Do you have a love interest, Conan? For example, a girl you met a long time ago... and couldn't forget..."
Shinichi/Conan (confused): "N-not... really..."
Masumi: *gives him a dirty look*
Movie 18: Dimensional Sniper
Masumi (to Ran): "There's only one man who can snipe your heart, Ran..."
Masumi (internal monologue): For now, anyway...
And then there are moments like when she blushes at him when he takes off his glasses (File 930).
She knows Conan Edogawa is Shinichi Kudo—and 7-year-old Shinichi Kudo made quite an impact on her (File 972–File 974).
I'd say it's entirely valid to conclude that she's in love with him—at the very least, it's an unrequited crush

Yep, you got it.
“Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent. We would not dare to conceive the things which are really mere commonplaces of existence. If we could fly out of that window hand in hand, hover over this great city, gently remove the roofs, and and peep in at the queer things which are going on, the strange coincidences, the plannings, the cross-purposes, the wonderful chains of events, working through generations, and leading to the most outre results, it would make all fiction with its conventionalities and foreseen conclusions most stale and unprofitable.”
“Education never ends... it is a series of lessons, with the greatest for the last.”
