Chapter: English Literature During The Middle Ages
Continuing where we left off, Gawain realizes that his stalker won't be leaving anytime soon, so he tries to talk his way out of sex. The Lady of the House, meanwhile, is throwing herself at him, demanding satisfaction from the famous Sir Gawain. Our hero, realizing that he's dealing with a psychotic fangirl, decides to trade off his reputation, telling her that doing another man's wife simply wouldn't be very noble of Sir Gawain, greatest of Arthur's knights. Though disappointed, the Lady seems to become even more smitten with Gawain due to this extreme example of nobility. She finally agrees to leave, but not before stealing a kiss which Gawain (very awkwardly) accepts.
It's a good thing this story wasn't about Lancelot.
