"Water Style: Water Encampment Pillar!"
Korra cursed under her breath as her flame attacks were stopped by a raging torrent of water that her opponent had released from her mouth. Thinking quickly she stood her ground and used her water bending skills to divert the attack away from her, into the far side of the arena. Had she the time to think, she'd have attempted to redirect it towards the woman who had released the attack, but she knew doing so would only leave her open to counterattack.
As if on cue, Mei Terumi dashed up to her and let loose with a flurry of jabs and kicks in an attempt to take initiative in the fight. While normally Korra would have been able to fend off such blows easily, her greatly expanded and round body was making it difficult to move around with a sense of normalcy.
Mei wasn't having a much easier time of it. Her round, heavy belly, large thighs and wide, wobbling backside made it just as tricky to move and fight like she was used to. It wouldn't have been a problem normally, but Korra's elemental bending abilities made her powerful Jutsus practically useless as attacks and only just worthwhile as defensive maneuvers, leaving her to rely on hand to hand combat and try and find an opening to use a stronger ability. If only there was some way to use the pool they'd added in the arena's center to her advantage...
Suddenly an idea came to her. Without missing an opportunity, Mei backed off her offense and retreated, using concentrated chakra in her feet to run across the top of the water towards the pool's center, before turning back around to face her opponent.
Puzzled by the ninja woman's sudden retreat, Korra was caught off guard by what happened next. The water in the pool began to churn and swirl and bubble violently. She immediately took a defensive stance, ready to deflect the oncoming attack. Instead, the pool erupted into a geyser, a powerful jet of water shooting Mei into the air with such force it knocked Korra off her feet.
Mei breathed a sigh of relief momentarily, thankful that her gambit had paid off so far. From up atop the water pillar she'd be safe to start setting up some of her more powerful jutsus to use against Korra. After all, there was no way the young woman would be able to see her all the way up...
"Here you are!" Korra shouted as her body rose through the air to where Mei was hiding. She'd taken advantage of her inflated body and used her airbending to fly into the air.
It was Mei Terumi's turn to curse under her breath now. It looked like this fight was far from over.
