FC: Sir Gawain and the Green Knight Continued... By Josh Nelson 8-2
1: The Knights of the round table were all shocked at the event that had happened. They all knew that when the Green Knight would bring the Axe down on sir Gawain he would die. They had to go to Merlin to find a way to save sir Gawain.
3: King Arthur and The Knights of the round table went to go see Merlin. "Merlin we need your help", explained King Arthur "Sir Gawain was challenged to exchange blows with a man called the Green Knight, but when Gawain struck him his head just fell off and he was still living. The man is invincible". "The man has a spell on him", replied Merlin. "He cannot die from anything that is the color green", Merlin explained. "Gawain, I will put the same spell on you as the Green Knight has, so the second time you strike him you will have to do it with your own weapon. Do you understand Gawain?" Gawain nodded while Merlin put the spell on him.
4: Next Christmas was the night before the arrival of the Green Knight. As the knights toasted their greatest wishes to Gawain. | They each said something about sir Gawain and then King Arthur gave him a good luck token. It was an all gold coin, one side had a picture of a lion and the other side had a picture of a knight fighting on horse back in a vicious battle.
5: The next morning when sir Gawain woke up and went down stairs. He saw the Green knight and king Arthur standing in the great hall. The green knight had his green Axe, so Gawain knew that if Merlin was right he wouldn't have to worry. "But what do I do when my head comes off?" Gawain thought. He looked at the Green Knight and saw his head was on perfectly, there wasn't even a scar. "I wonder if I just place it on, will it be good?" thought Gawain "I will have to talk to Merlin if I don't die".
6: Sir Gawain went down to the bottom of the stairs to greet the Green Knight. Knelt down by the Green Knight and tilted his head forward, exposing his neck. | The Green Knight raised the Axe above his head and brought it down right on Gawain's neck. Gawain's head rolled right to King Arthur's feet, Gawain winked at King Arthur. King Arthur knew he had to kill the Green Knight.
7: King Arthur pulled out his sword and cut the Green Knight in half. He ran to Sir Gawain's head to see if he was still living or what had happened. He picked up his head and Sir Gawain started talking to him, King Arthur was so shocked he dropped Gawain's head.
8: King Arthur Picked up Sir Gawain's head. "Sir Gawain you are alive!" King Arthur shouted with joy, "Merlin's spell worked!" "Yeah!" exclaimed Sir Gawain, "but could you please put my head back on my body?" King Arthur places Sir Gawain's head back on his body and it just went right together, it looked good as new. "I didn't think you had it in you Sir Gawain, you really showed me you are a brave loyal knight and you can out smart an opponent" King Arthur explained. That night all the knights of the round table toasted to Sir Gawain and from that day on the Knights and King Arthur would toasted to Gawain every December 26th.
