As Gawain tries to brave the Winter he prays to Virgin Mary to find a place and lucky for him he finds a palace with a host who welcomes him inside.
The Host and Gawain decided to play a game where they would exchange what they got each day that Gawain stayed at the end of the day.
In the morning the host decides to leave to go hunting and the host’s wife starts flirting with Gawain.
At the end of the day, the Host gives Gawain the venison that he hunted and Gawain gave the host the Kiss that he got from his wife
The next day is very similar to the first as the Host’s wife continues to flirt with Gawain and the Host continues to hunt and at the end of the day, they exchange what they got that day.
On the third and final day, the Host’s wife asks for a token of Gawain’s love but when he denies that he has any she gives him a girdle which she claims has the power to prevent its holder from dying and at the end of the day Gawain fails to return this item to the host.
