Eve stared blankly at Claire. Waiting for her or one the boys to start laughing and say how stupid she was to actually think that it was true. But they didn't. They all looked at her with calm expressions waiting for her to say the first word.
"You must be joking?" Eve questioned. Claire smiled grimly as if she knew Eve was going to react like that. Shane and Michael exchanged looks and then turned to Claire.
"Babe, I think you're gonna have to tell her the story. The whole story." Shane softly said to Claire. Claire swiftly turned to look at him and he smiled a sweet smile, Claire seemed to visibly deflate and gave Shane her own smile and a kiss. Michael smiled at his sister and gave her a hug and said to her if she wanted to stop the story at any point he would carry it on.
Claire took a deep breath "Okay, well look the vampires are real, we grew up here we see them all time. Actually locals of this town have a curfew. Get in before dark otherwise you can become vamp food, unless your protected which none of us are. That's were the college comes in, they take 4% a year and the rest is taxes from the locals. We've tragedy after tragedy involving both vampires and humans, most of the people around here are scared shitless and when someone dies around here the motto is "Run now Morn later". Now we can talk about the vamps later. Would you like to know more about us?" she pointed to herself and the boys, Eve nodded eagerly and thought that the vampire issue was a bit scary to talk about at the moment anyway.
"Okay, me and Michael are twins, both of us are eighteen and were brought up in a house down by the college. You see this house also belongs to the Glass Family but our grandfather Sam was using it at the time, so my mother and father moved into a little house down the road from him. Me and Michael are - were- the oldest children, our parents then went on to have James,who we used to call Jamie, who would be around sixteen now, and Lexi who would be around twelve. We met Shane in Middle School and we were all good friends even though we still hang around with other people. Then when me and Michael were fifteen, we met Monica. See we used to go to the same school but didn't really meet until high school. She took an interest in me, said I was pretty and if I wanted to hang out with her and her "friends" I said no. I could see behind the mask she put on to the public she was a bitch then and still is now. Well as you could guess by the conversation you overheard that no one says no to Monica Morrell. Shane, Michael and I had gone out to a party. We got our house, Shane was meant to be staying over, and found it to be up in flames. Michael and I froze and then we ran into the building." Claire and Michael were crying by now so Shane took up the story after directing Claire over to her brother and they were now clinging to each other for comfort.
" I screamed out to them to come back, everyone had come to see what was happening and the firefighters had been called. I saw Sam watching in horror and he collapsed. I couldn't wait for the firefighters anymore. I ran in after them. The first thing I saw was smoke and flame but then I heard Claire scream. I screamed her name and found her bent over her parents bodies. I could hear Michael upstairs but I had to get Claire out first. I pulled her out of the fire and into Sam who was waiting for them. He gave her a hug and thanked me for getting her out. I told him it wasn't over yet I would get the rest of the family. I ran back into the blaze with Claire crying and shouting telling me to come back. I kept going. I ran in to the house up to where I knew Michael was trying to rescue his little brother and sister. I tried to help him, but the door was blocked and we couldn't get through. The firefighters finally arrived and told me to get myself and Michael back outside so I did. We got outside to see Claire and Sam hugging. Sam saw us and whispered something to Claire, she turned round ran right to Michael and they didn't let go off each other. Finally the fire was out but unfortunately the house, its possessions were destroyed. But what hurt everyone the most was that Claire and Michael not only became orphans that day, they became the only siblings each other had. The funeral was a week later and Claire and Michael didn't come back to school for a few weeks and they moved in with their grandfather. When they came back to school nobody really treated them the same. Except me. It ended up being the three of us for the rest of high school and we were okay with that. Claire and I started to go out when we were juniors and have been together ever since." Shane finally finished the story. Claire and Michael were still wrapped up in their own world and Eve was pale with her mouth open. No one spoke for awhile and finally Claire looked up.
"Well that's our story. If you want I'll show you too our spare room, you must be exhausted from being bashed around by Queen Bitch." Eve nodded and after saying good night to the boys, followed Claire upstairs. Claire pointed out each room in turn, The first was Michael's, the second was Claire's and Shane's, the third was the main bathroom and the forth was another spare room that they kept for Claire and Michael's grandfather who still visited the house. Claire opened the door and Eve was taken aback. It was the biggest room she had ever seen and it was decorated nicely. Claire smiled at Eve's expression and said;
"I'll see you in the morning then. Sleep tight Eve." As Claire shut the door Eve laid don to the bed and was asleep before Claire had even walked away.
-Downstairs in the Glass House-
When Claire got downstairs the two boys were in a deep conversation. She slipped inbetween them and leaned into Shane who wrapped his arm around her. She looked at them and said;
" What are we going to do about Eve then?" the boys looked at her sharply both appraising her expression.
"Well she can't go back the the dorms but what would happen if we let her live here? The vamps wouldn't be happy about it would they?" Shane said slowly. Michael seemed to be thinking and then said;
"I think it's time we spoke to grandpa Sam, Claire Bear."
