"What treats do eye doctors give out on Halloween?"
Galen glanced at his friend, Flash's eyes were sparkling with mischief.
A smirk played on his lips, he knew Rob was going to regret this.
"Please, Flash, enough, I can't take anymore…"
"Oh come on, it's Halloween!" came the hyper reply. Flash was practically buzzing from all the candy he had managed to stuff in his mouth in the last half hour. If he didn't know any better, Galen would have guessed that Flash hadn't seen a candy bar for years. Big chance.
The way he had chomped down the dark chocolate peanut butter cups had been spectacular, the evidence still smeared on the corners of his mouth.
"It's also my birthday, and I would hate to have to spend it in jail because I murdered you!"
Galen snorted, knowing that wouldn't put Flash off, once he got started, there was practically no stopping him.
"Please, Rob, just quickly…" came the pleading reply, he was bouncing on the tips of his toes in anticipation, a look of pure glee on his somehow innocent looking face.
"For all things holy, okay … I don't' know, what do eye doctors give out as treats on Halloween?"
Galen had to bite his lip, he didn't want to encourage the madness by laughing hysterically at his brothers rolling eyes.
"Candy corneas!" Came the proud reply.
There was a moment of dead silence.
Galen dared a glance at his younger brother, a look of horrified disbelief on his face. It was too much.
And as Dorr and Dera loved to remind them all for years to come, "The roars of laughter from the Apothecary still haunted the dark creatures who had heard it for miles across the veil."
