Summary: He was born four months early. A winter birthday, late December. His mother died in bearing him. He was a tiny, ugly baby. His face was pinched and small and grey, the face of an old man, or a monkey. In the middle of his forehead, there was a second set of eyes. His father cried and named him Argus, of the many eyes.
Argus Filch was abandoned by everyone he knew, starting with his parents. That is, until he met Lucie Jones, a beautiful witch, and her bitter mother, whose past Lucie is terrified of repeating. An unlikely love blossoms. But, Argus wonders, can Lucie really stay with him forever, when no one else ever could?
Summary: Tell a fool their life is perfect, and they will happily nod “yes.” Tell a fool they’ve found love and happiness and all the riches in the world, and they will smile, because they think so themselves.
