The Wedding of Sir Gawain and Dame Ragnelle
'Lady, forgive me! It is a shock! You are a beautiful lady now!'
'Ah, Sir Gawain, since I am now your wife,' said this hideous creature as they lay together, 'show me courtesy in bed. It is my right and you may not deny me. I know, Sir Gawain, that if I was beautiful you would be acting in another way entirely on this your wedding night. Yet for King Arthur's sake kiss me at least; I ask you this. Then let us see what may develop.'
Sir Gawain turned over to face her and saw the most beautiful woman he had ever seen, looking back at him. 'What do you desire?' she asked.
'Jesus! What are you?' Sir Gawain exclaimed.
'Sir, I am your wife,' she replied. 'Why do you stare at me?'
''Lady, I apologise. Forgive me! It is a shock! You are a beautiful lady, and yet earlier today you were the most disgusting sow I had ever set my eyes upon.
