I have found several occurrences of ここは in several parts but they do not seem to have the meaning of "here" but I may be mistaken


But just you know, my skills are serious stuff. I don’t go around teaching them to just anybody, got it ? There was Aqua, trying to make herself important again -but since I needed her to teach me, I would just have to tolerate it.

  • You mean: 話し手が、自分をへりくだっていう。この身。わたくし ? – Makoto Jan 7 at 19:50
  • To my brain, this can work with different meanings of ここ, but I'll leave it to someone more knowledgeable than me to explain which interpretation is the proper one in this context. – LonelyDriver Jan 7 at 20:19
  • ここ seems to be referring to the speaker here. – zareami10 Jan 7 at 23:58

As @LonelyDriver 's link also explains, ここ has meanings that are quite abstract, such as time and situation. This sentence refers to ここ in the latter meaning. The weblio entry says:

3 話し手や周囲の人が現に置かれている状況や程度
3. The degree or situation that the speaker or people around the speaker is in.

So, from this definition, a rough translation of your sentence might be:

This is a situation where I should just put up with her.
