March

Once upon a time there was a little baby girl called Susan March. Susan, a Taurean, was born to Mary Anne, a housewife, and George Arthur, a builder’s labourer, on 24th April 1955 at Horsham District Hospital in West Sussex.

Her birth wasn’t registered by Hubert James Pryke, Registrar of Births and Deaths, until 6th June 1955, for reasons unapparent.

After the birth, Susan’s mother, born Mary Ann Bullet, took her baby home to 1, Harts Wood Road in Crawley where she bottle-fed her baby, winded her, and put her to bed in a plain wooden cot, next to her bed, where she could admire her wonderful little creation.

Jesus said, ‘Suffer the little children to come unto me and forbid them not for of such is the kingdom of heaven’.

And so, Susan, the child of George and Mary March, was baptised on 28th August 1955 at St Peters Church in West Green in the presence of her godparents, Charlie and Pat Bud, by Michael Hewitt, Curate-in-Charge who said,

‘Ye are to take care that this Child be brought to the Bishop to be confirmed by him.’

Susan was taken care of by Mary and George in a most unusual way. She would never be confirmed. Nevertheless, she would rest in peace, and sleep at night, until her fourth year. When Susan would have her first strange dream, and undergo her physical transformation.

Once upon a time, there was a baby girl, called Susan. Who grew into a boy, called March.
