Stroke of Midnight

I rushed down the steps eager to get ready. Today was the first day of school and though I am eighteen all eighteen year olds still have another year of school. What a drag. Logan had got married before me and after constant begging finally got James to change him into a vampire. He liked me a lot unlike other people in the family and considered me a little sister to him. Kai was sitting at the table with Pete while I sat on the edge of the table in front of both of them.
“What is that?” Kai asked me looking pointedly at my book.
“It’s Eclipse.”
“You are still reading those vampire romance novels?”
“Yes, every teenage girl is- it’s the new trend.”
“I don’t see why.”
“Well they are a lot like you guys.”
“How? I’m pretty sure they aren’t anything like us.”
“Well they remind me of you all. Logan is Alice, you are Edward, and Clide is Emmett. Dakota is Esme, Paige is Rosalie, and I guess Will would be Jasper.”
“You know I have no idea who those people are right?”
“You should read the books one day.”
“I’m not a teenage girl now eat so we can go to school.”
I grabbed a bowl off the top shelf and my secret stash of Lucky Charms. Pouring the milk in and grabbing my spoon I sat across from the two boys and ate slowly.
“Who is Carlisle?” Pete asked.
“You read the Twilight saga?”
“Logan does I have to listen to her go on and on about how Jacob deserves Bella.”
“Edward deserves Bella!”
“Anyways who is Carlisle?”
“I guess no one since there isn’t really a farther figure in your coven.”
“What about Kai?”
“James? They both work in healing people.”
“I guess.”
Hurry up and eat.” Kai ordered more harsh this time around.
“Yes sir.” I mumbled.
He grabbed me when I was finished and dragged me out to his black Mustang that I loved so much. He let me ride in the front seat with him instead of the back. He had made a promise to me when I was dying that he would no longer treat me like a child.
“Claire,” He asked as he spun out of the forest and drove out to the road. “Do you remember what I said?”
I already knew what he was talking about-the hospital. When he told me that he won’t be around forever, that when I go to college he will be leaving for eternity. I will probably die before I see him again.
“I remember.” I said shaking my head to force the memory out.
“College isn’t that far away.”
“I don’t want to talk about you leaving.”
“We’ll have to talk about it sometime.”
“But why now?”
“It will make it a clean break.”
“It will just make me depressed sooner.”
“Claire.” He was begging now.
“Does this have to do about what I am?”
“That has nothing to do with what we are talking about.” He growled.
“Yes it does and you know it.”
“Claire, what are you doing for college?”
“I will tell you when you decide to tell me how you will save me.”
“I have a way, Claire.”
“Why are you hiding it from me?”
“Because you don’t need to know.”
“What if I was dying.”
“What if you weren’t.”
He stopped the car in the school parking lot. We had gotten there fairly early and there were still kids in the parking lot lingering before class. He was already opening my door for me before I got my seat belt off. I got out walking straight into the school by time the bell rang.
“Do I have any classes with you?” I questioned.
“A few but you have history with me and Paige.”
“Oh, isn’t that just great.” I murmured.
“You need to get to your first class or you’ll be late.”
He kissed my forehead and watched me walk off to class. I sat next to a boy in a Hollister T-shirt with a collar and dark blue jeans. He wasn’t extremely muscular like Clide but had a lot of muscle. His hair was cropped and brown a matching chestnut with his eyes.
“I’m Noah.” His voice was quiet and shy.
“I’m Claire.”

I think your story is ok, but work on explaining things more; i was confused about a lot of things, like if Logan was a boy or girl.
