How could I just stand aside?

QUEEN OF STORMS
Treasure hunter's heart/ Book 3
I maybe lost the battle, but I haven’t lost the war. It’s time to confront my past.
I failed. The city was seized, and my world came crashing down. Like a scared little rabbit running from a fox, I hid.
But I’m still doing my part, even after everything–I went searching for the mysterious Maragnon’s Key to the far edges of the world, where I remained hidden for several years. Luckily, I have Uncle Mat and our secret project, which keeps me busy and my mind away from Nicholas and everything that happened. There is this handsome traveler Jerome, though, who hovers around me. I do like him, but I can never dare to let anyone get too close to me again. Not after losing so much.
I was pretty content in my new life with my secret project and my friend Jerome, until one of my treasure hunting expeditions failed miserably and I saw Nicholas. Something terrible happened and now I know I can’t hide any longer.
I know Nicholas needs me, but do I have what it takes to confront the Divided again? Regardless of how many years have passed, I still miss him. No matter what, I will show the world what the Charms truly are about, and at the same time, I will help Nicholas.
After all, I owe this to him.

I have people on my side, and I know they would be there with me, but how could I let them suffer? What could they do? This is my task, set for me centuries ago, and doing it alone is the only way to finish this. I refuse to see any more people get hurt because of me. If I am the only one who can fix this, and if this mission will be the death of me… I am ready.
