Once Upon Time in a town called Camelot, right around Christmas, King Arthur and his Knights had a big feast. King Arthur's nephew, Sir Gawain, was the youngest of all the knights. As the feast was beginning, Arthur raised his glass for a toast. A strange man rode down the hallway and offered a challenge for anyone to take. Since no one would take the challenge including the Knights, King Arthur did.
Sir Gawain stepped in and said to the Green Knight "This is a young man's challenge, let me take the King's place." The Green Knight took Gawain's challenge. Gawain got to take the first blow with his ax anywhere that he wanted to. Their where conditions to these actions though, in a year and a day the Green Knight would get to take a blow at Sir Gawain with the same weapon in the same spot. When it was time for Gawain to take the challenge, he rared back, swung, and took the Green Knight's head off. Surprisingly, the Green Knight stood up and picked his head up off the ground, got back on his horse and rode away holding his head in his hand. As he rode away, he made sure to remind Gawain that he had to seek him out in a year and a day for him to have his turn. Gawain promised he would and went on his way. In a year and a day Gawain started to travel in search of the Green Knight. On his travels, he came across a lady and the lord of the Castle, he tells the lady and the lord who he was looking for and the lady gives him a magical green girdle. She told him that he could never be harmed if he wore that & she also sent the Lord with him to take him to the Green Chapel.
The Lord warns him not to proceed as the approach the Chapel. Sir Gawain tells him he has to keep his word to the Knight. Sir Gawain then enters the Chapel and sees a green man. The green man is in fact the Green Knight. The Green Knight tells Sir Gawain to kneel down, he then swing the ax at his head but surprisingly the as stops right at his head. The Green Knight then realizes that he is wearing the green girdle. The Knight decides to let Gawain live and from then on that day was considered a sacred day of feasting. THE END.
