Today was New Year's Day. It was a day full of joy and laughter until something strange happened. A green knight made an agreement with me that if I struck him with an axe, I'd have to let him strike me a year from today. So I agreed. He laid on the table, acting normal as if he were not about to lose his life. I raised the double sided axe as high as I could up above my head and swung. I swung with all my might, so hard in fact that it created sparks when it went clean through his neck and into the stone bench. His head rolled off and I thought that was the end of it. His body then proceeded to get up, walk over to his head and hold it in his hand. He told me that one year from today, I'm to go meet him in the green castle to keep my end of the bargain. He then mounted his horse with his head still in his hand and galloped away. Everyone there was completely awestruck and then there was silence.
