"A very noble and sportsman-like defeat, Jahn," Caleb says as he offers to heal Jahn's wounds with waterbending. "I'll get him back for you." Caleb spoke in a laughing voice.
A small group of waterbenders jogged out to the bleachers where Jahn and Caleb were sitting. "We'll take it from here," said one of them to Caleb. "Thanks."
I awoke. It was my turn. Lets do this!
I thought with anxiety. I clothed myself for battle, and entered the arena. The day before, the arena had a solid earth base and a 20-foot-tall gap between the earth and the ceiling. This gave Jahn plenty of earth to bend and Atraiu plenty of air. Today, the arena base was mostly water with two large circular platforms floating on the water.
I iced the water in front of me to make a mini-bridge to the platform on the left. Atraiu leaped, with the assistance of his airbending, to the platform on the right. "Undefeated Champion Atraiu vs. Newcomer Caleb. Engage combat!" The referee shouted.
I turned my gaze from the ref to Atraiu. "May the better bender prevail," I said as I walked off my platform, towards Atraiu, and onto the water: my foot creating a patch of ice when it touched the water. I cracked my neck and prepared for battle, and with a smug smirk, made a disk of ice large enough to take a waterbending stance upon.
