If your trade was placed after 8:01, it would not trade until the pre-market the next morning, which starts at 8:00 am. Your stock will trade at whatever price a buyer is willing to sell for at 8:00 am (it could be be another person placing a sell order at 8:02 pm or even at 7:59 am). Thus, unless you placed a limit order (don't buy over $10), you get whatever that first sell is made at.

You have to purchase the shares at the most recent value. You can wait and hope the value will fall to $10.00, but often it will not. In stock trading the buyer makes and offer and the seller makes an offer. You can only buy a share if you pay what the seller wants, or the seller sells at the price you want. The bidding prices will change depending on the balance of buyers and sellers. If there are more people who want to buy, the price creeps up. If there are more people who want to sell the price creeps down. If you enter an order after hours for $10 and the next day the price opens at $12.00, no seller will sell the stock to you for $10.00. You would have to buy the stock for $12.00 if you want it. Why would the seller sell it to you for $10.00 if others will buy it at $12.00?
