That's normal she just has to learn that there are boundaries. And for me that tickling would be one of them. I love my male cousins. And I have been accused of something similar because we were home alone playing rockband. I love those boys to death! But certainly not in that way.
It could also be that she thinks of it as brotherly love, I know my brother tickles me, (and I HATE it!!!) but he's also 15 and I am 19.
Were are close, and I know she cares alot about me, I care alot about her too! If needed I could talk to her about it. I love her alot too, and in the way she's family and all. And I don't know she could think of it that way, her brother AKA my nephew is a year older than me haha and yeah siblings don't always get long great so for all I know I could be like a brother to her or something.

It might not even be her but someone who has witnessed it.
Tickling is very close contact.
That in itself is enough to arouse suspicion.
There are many ways to interact with your cousin that do not involve such close contact. Shalom
Its my niece not cousin...
