New single "Finally Found You" available on iTunes.
Now i must explain first when i went to this concert i wasn’t a huge fan my friend Sophie asked if i would go and i said yes i`ll go, never seen him live i wasn’t that bothered who he was, i just love live music. We did make sure that Enrique`s greatest hits cd was playing all the way to Cardiff just so i didn’t look stupid ,but i knew all his songs anyway ,just never brought any of his albums. The only song i hadn’t listened to in a long time was “ hero “ and that song reminded me of my ex and every time it was played i use to turn the radio off! Too many memories , too hurtful to listen too.
So, we drive to Cardiff to watch Enrique in concert, it took us about 2 hours to get there traffic was good on this particular day thank god, when we arrived around 4pm it was a lovely sunny day.
We found somewhere to park quite easy right next to the Cardiff arena. We sat in the car wondering
what to do as we were so early, i said “well , we could walk into town go get something to eat, go shopping just to kill sometime then come back a little later on”.
We got out the car, we decided to check which way we had to go in to the arena we looked up & noticed a huge crowd had developed at the back of the arena, so went to see what all the fuss was about.Enrique had just arrived and he was running late as usual and i just saw the top of his hat, all these girls were screaming out his name to which i just laughed and shook my head, all of a sudden i heard some one call my name “June, June “over here i looked over by the barrier & noticed a guy waving at me, it was one of the Roadie`s that i knew called Jamie i knew Jamie from another gig he was doing ages ago. Jamie was 6ft with short Blonde hair not bad looking if i were honest.
He called me over & asked how i was, said i was fine said hello to my friend Sophie, i said to” Jamie what brings you here” he replied “the company i work for are doing the Enrique tour”, “wow that`s good for ya” i replied. Jamie then said to me “Are you still a keen photographer”
“yes i am why?” Looking really puzzled.
“Well Enrique`s resident photographer has had to go back home to Miami due to ill health & the management & Enrique are losing their minds because they desperately need someone to take photos for tonight`s gig & the rest of his tour”. I smiled & said “what has that got to do with me” acting a bit dumb and smiling at Jamie “well ,was wondering if your up to doing it i would have to go and speak to his people first” i blushed and i said “yeah would love too, but it wont Happen Jamie they wouldn’t want someone like me ,miss ordinary doing that sort of thing, he said “lets try yeah?”
I gave him my number & he said he would ring & let me know either way.
We walked off and Sophie was dead excited i said “don’t get your hopes up it aint going to happen lets walk in to town to get something to eat” by this time i was starving it was like 4.30pm we hadn’t eaten since 9am & that was at breakfast!
we got half way in to town when my phone rings its Jamie i gasp at Sophie, shaking i answered it & he said “where are you? Walking in to town why? “
“Well you better get your sorry little arse back here they want you to do some test shots of Enrique`s sound check & if your any good you`ve got the gig!!” I squealed with delight & went “nah Jamie your winding me up” he replied “i am not June, Enrique said he wanted to see what you were
made of! So, seriously get your arse back here now, but you have to be here
like now” he screamed. “Ok, ok” i said “we`re coming back right now but i warn you, you better not be winding me up Jamie! “I turned to Sophie & said “we`ve gotta go back they want me now!” smiling
really silly I said to Jamie “we`re be there in about 10 minutes”
I screamed, jumped up & down, said “we going to have to run back mate” she laughed & said “what in these heels” i said “yeah take them off “laughing.we ran as fast as we could back to the arena as it was getting late it was about 5.00pm and the doors were due to open at 6.30pm but Enrique hadn’t even done his sound check.
We got back to the arena and there was even more people waiting to see Enrique and as we were walking towards the barrier i heard some bloke say to these girls “oh they reckon they going to just walk up & go straight in” i smiled at the little cocky bloke as The security guy lifted the barrier up, i said “we`re here to see Jamie”, the guy look over at Jamie he gave The nod and the security guard let us through. The bloke blushed with embarrassment, i looked at him and laughed he put his head down because he knew how stupid he sounded, to be honest i don’t think he even knew we heard him say
what he did.
Jamie said “here your both going to need these access all areas passes” as we were walking into the venue, we put them over our heads so that the hung from out necks, so that they could be scanned each time we went anywhere.
“Sophie, your going to have to sit this one out i`m afraid your have to wait in the lounge room as Enrique doesn’t want anyone else in the arena apart from the Band, sound engineers & his management and of course June” Jamie smiled at this because he knew that this could be the best thing that has happened to me. It did make me blush that Enrique only wanted me in there with the others, and i thought, yeah right as if Enrique would even give me a second glance.
Jamie took me through and i remember thinking this is too good to be true someone pinch me please, my heart was beating so fast i was shaking, the palms of my hands were sweaty and my mouth was dry, Dave one of the sound guys introduced me to everyone he said “you can go anywhere you like,
where would you prefer to take your pix?” I said sheepishly ,”can i go on the cat walk?”
Dave replied “yes you can”, smiling at me there was some small steps leading to end of the catwalk & i decided i was going to sit crossed legged at the end to take some pix just take a few then go nearer once i plucked up the courage to do so...Id never seen Enrique in concert let alone met him & i never really been nervous when i have met famous people before,but this time “oh boy”
Enrique popped out from the side of the stage saw me sitting on the end of the catwalk & waved said
in to the microphone “Hey June, you ok?”
The house lights were up so he could see me clearly He looked so handsome and so tall id forgotten how tall he was. He was wearing his trade mark cap jeans, white hoodie with a scarf to keep his throat warm. I thought my heart was going to stop beating, I could feel it miss a beat when i saw him standing there smiling. I was looking up feeling myself blushing a lot i waved back & smiled thinking my god he looks even more handsome in the flesh.
The band starting playing ring my bells just as Enrique started walking towards me i was laughing to myself because i was so nervous, i could feel myself going red as he walked up to me smiling and singing “ring my bells” He stopped singing, the band continued to play.
He came right up to me sat down in front of me crossed his legs and our knees were touching each other, he said “you ok”? too which i replied “well err no, if i am honest i am shitting myself,” too which
he burst out laughing “hold your hands out “i put my camera down & i held my hands out he said “turn your hands, so your palms are facing the floor”, i looked at him he said “wow, you really are shitting yourself “ he said laughing at me “ your hands are shaking like mad, just like mine”
he started to laugh as he made his hands shake. I laugh at him thinking you silly sod but he put me at ease really quickly.
Enrique then said “bet your heart is beating real fast? “To that i answered “yes, it is “ took his right hand & placed it on my heart without even thinking where his hand was, he looked me right in the eye for a good few seconds smiled and then moved his hand away slowly, he was still smiling at this point. I thought how embarrassing was that, i mean, I don’t even know the guy really & go and do that to him, stupid, stupid i kept saying to myself.
I also remember thinking how beautiful his eyes were while he looking at me for that split moment,the skin on is hands was so soft. He then took hold of my camera & came right next me put his to head to my head & took a photo,” smile” he said as he was taking it.
He then got up ,extended his arms ,pulled me up said “bet your not nervous now are ya”
kissed me on both cheeks gave me hug and said “go for it June , take as many pix as you like, the more the better lets see how good u really are!! Put it this way if these photo`s don’t come out very good Jamie is going to be in big trouble” laughing.
I took about 50 photos of him doing the sound check he was running late as usual but he needed
to make sure everything was good to go for tonight`s gig, he finished & i said “Thanks Enrique” he said “No probs June i`ll take a look at them now if that`s ok? Yeah of course”, I took the memory card out the camera and gave it to him he said “do you mind waiting in the lounge room with the band? Just while i take a look at these with Fernando and we won`t keep you in suspense too long i promise you” he said smiling & he gave me a wink.
Went into the lounge room & my friend Sophie was talking
to Laura Jane they both asked how it went i said “ok i think, their looking at them now” i said nervously. Laura said “he will love them June trust me, Sophie has showed me some other photo`s that you have taken & you are really good June, Don`t put yourself down”, “cant help it “”i replied “just don’t think i am that good if i am totally honest with you” i snapped and i apologise for snapping but she understood how much this meant to me.
I smiled at her but i wasn’t convinced kept thinking he wasn’t going to like them & that they would be wasting their time testing me when they could have got a professional photographer in for one night.
About half an hour went past and i have to say it was the longest half hour of my life i was walking up & down the room thinking to myself he won`t like them, bet they turned out blurred. Everyone kept telling me sit down don’t worry, but i couldn’t i was worrying big time.
Then the door swings open i stop dead in my tracks, Fernando says “June, come with me”...Gulp i looked at everyone in the room they wished me luck. Enrique`s dressing room was at the end of the corridor my heart was beating so fast, i was so sure that Fernando could hear it going boom,
boom boom, Fernando knocked on Enrique`s door walked in & said to me “come in, sit down next to Enrique” i smiled and said “thanks” as i did Enrique kissed me again on the cheek & said “well
I was really blushing at this point my heart was pounding, my hands a little sweaty, my mouth was so dry & i honestly thought i was going to cry.........
Yes June i agree wid Jennifer
A Fun But Silly Story Part 2
I went upstairs for a lie down strip off my clothes & I caught myself in the mirror I just burst in to tears I grabbed one of Enrique`s T-shirts & got in to bed & I sobbed my heart out! I heard the door open I looked round it was Enrique he came towards the bed saw that I was crying grabbed me & gave me a huge cuddle. We didn’t say anything to one another for about 10 minutes, we laid down I started to close my eyes as he said “June, why the tears babe?” I moved round so I could see his face I said to him “I am Fat, I am ugly & I have no idea why you bother with me!” I turned over on to my side.
He leant over me said “My god June, you have just had Twins this morning your going to feel down, but no way are you Fat or Ugly babe, I love you so much please don’t cry” I wouldn’t let him touch me “Please Enrique I`d like to be on my own!” he leaned down kissed my cheek, he said “I love you” & he went downstairs.
Enrique went back downstairs, Olivia she went running to him said “Daddy Auntie May just let me feed Amber” He smiled at her “wow, who`s a big girl feeding your younger sister” Deep down he was sad, he wanted to be with me to cuddle me to comfort me, but he knew if he tried that I would get more upset with him, so he left me in peace.
May had made some soup & she said to Enrique “Take this up to June, it might make her feel better” So, he brings me the soup, he knocks on the bedroom door, No answer so he walks in & I am still asleep, he walks round me says “Hey, June, May has made you some soup” I open my eyes & say “I`m not hungry” He knew there was no way I was going to eat it, so instead he had the soup himself he didn’t want to offend May. I looked at him said “what are you doing?” “Eating your soup” I lifted my head up said “I can see that, but why?” he replied back saying “Because May made this especially for you & I am not going to Offend her by taking it back untouched Babe!” i placed my head back down on the pillow rolled over so I couldn’t look at him!
Enrique just left the room went back downstairs & May was over the moon that I had eaten it, Enrique hated lying to May, but he really didn’t want to disappoint her.
Maria was staying over with us now especially as Amber & Cruz had now arrived; she had them both in her room, so that I could get a good night sleep. Enrique came to bed I was in the shower, I came out already dressed for bed, he looked at me said “huh, you don’t normally do that June” I looked at him said “Do what?” In a sarcastic voice, “get dressed in the bathroom, you always get dressed in here” I sighed real loud said “Can`t I do anything right today” I walked over to the bed & went to sleep. Enrique got no kiss no cuddle no nothing! I was going to be stubborn he doesn’t need me, he has what he wanted children, I am sure I could just leave now!
That night Ella woke up around 3am Enrique got up to see to her, as i didn’t even hear her cry i just continued to sleep, he stayed up for ages watching some DVDs, going on the internet, he thought to himself tomorrow I will see how June is, if she is in the same mood, he was phoning Jacob for some advice.
The next morning I woke up around 5am Enrique was asleep next to me, I gently got out of bed put some clothes on & decided to go for a walk just to clear my head. I decided to go to the beach the sun was just rising as i sat down on the sand watching the waves, there was a light breeze this morning t wasn’t cold, it was warming up nicely. As i sat there i pulled my legs up & hugged them & I cried I should be happy I have the man of my dreams, I have 4 gorgeous kids & yet I am so very sad. I stayed there sat to that spot for ages, and then someone sat down next to me I looked it was Fernando, “What are you doing here?” He smiled “Good morning to you too June, Oh I was taking a walk when I noticed you, are you ok?” I looked at him with a knowing Glance “You didn’t see me; you were sent by him weren’t you?” He said “I cannot lie June, but Yes, he rang & asked if I would try & find you, he told me you were probably here” I sigh “Yep, this is my place Fernando I love coming to the beach, its just so peaceful especially first thing in the morning” Fernando looked at phone to see the time said “June did you know its actually 10 am?” I looked at him “what 10, you mean i have been here since 5 am Fernando” He put his arm around my shoulder said “That`s why he sent me out looking for you as Olivia was worried she hadn’t seen you this morning!” I got up said “we`d Better go back then”
We both arrived back 10 Minutes later Enrique was feeding Cruz as Olivia came running out over to me, “where have you been mummy?” I hugged her said “I went for a walk bumped in to Uncle Fernando I didn’t realise the time” I kissed her as i May gave me a cup of tea Enrique walked over to me says “Morning how you feeling?” he went to kiss me on the lips & i turned away he caught my cheek instead he shrugged his shoulders at May said “I have no idea” May whispers “You might want to ring Jacob I wouldn’t be surprised if June is depressed she may have the start of post-natal depression Enrique you must get June to see him as soon as you can”
Enrique called Jacob said “Is there anyway you can make an excuse to put in and see June for me?” Jacob replied with “why is something wrong?” Enrique sighs says “You know what Yes I think there is, she hasn’t eaten anything since yesterday morning she went out for a walk this morning at 5am didn’t come home until i sent Fernando out to look for her , she came back at 10am” Jacob said “I`ll come round later”
About an hour later Jacob came round Enrique greeted him Jacob asked “where is she?” Enrique said “upstairs, I wont come with you she doesn’t want me anywhere near her, I went to kiss her earlier she moved her head away, she hasn’t kissed or cuddled me since she gave birth to Amber & Cruz” He smiles walks upstairs knocks on the door I said “come in” he popped his head around the door “May I come in?” I smile “Yes of course you can, what brings you here?” He grabs a chair sits opposite me says “Just wanted to see how you were getting on June” “Oh I`m ok?” Jacob looked at me said “who are you kidding, you look dreadful June” Geez thanks doc” Listen June I think you have the baby Blues” I looked at him said “what Blues?” He stands up looks at me says “The baby Blues, your not eating, your not sleeping & you wont let Enrique near you!” I took a deep breath said “I knew it! He called you didn’t he??” No he didn’t he just told me before I came upstairs, he could see the tears welling up in my eyes & one by one they start rolling down my cheeks.
“June don’t get upset here have these tissues I think I will get Enrique” He got up went to the door called Enrique up & he came in said “sit down next to June” Enrique looked at me put his arm on my shoulder said “Babe, what`s wrong?” I just cried in to his chest as Jacob explained to Enrique “June at the moment has the baby Blue`s, if we don’t sort her out she will indeed end up with Post natal depression, I don’t want June going that far” Enrique kisses my forehead says “we`re be ok is there anything we can do?” Yes” he says “June I want you to keep a journal for your thoughts & write down what you eat everyday, I want you to talk to someone it doesn’t have to be Enrique, just someone you can trust, maybe May would be good” I smile through my tears say “yes, Ok how long do i keep this for?” “Well, I suggest a week then I will come round see how you doing, but June don`t bottle it up talk to Enrique, don’t keep anything that`s bothering you inside” I smile as I take his left hand & squeeze it he looks at me smiles blows me a kiss.
Jacob left 10 Minutes later Enrique walks back upstairs says “Hey wanna try a picnic this afternoon just you & me?” I look at him didn’t want to hurt his feelings so I said “Yes, that would be great but what about Olivia?” Enrique laughed come with me you wont believe it. We walked back to the kitchen where we saw Fernando & Olivia playing “he is going to stay here keep her company while we go out!”
May packed the picnic for us we didn’t tell Olivia we were going out she was having so much fun with Fernando, Enrique drove us to this quiet place near the Ocean. He un packed the car took hold of my hand and we walked to this secluded bit he laid out the blanket he knelt down took my hand said “come on June sit please” I smiled sat down he opened the picnic basket got out some champagne & poured it in to 2 champagne flutes “to us babe” I smiled leaned forward kissed him said “to us”
Meanwhile Olivia was looking at some photographs with Fernando when Olivia says “I know him” pointing to a photograph Fernando said “who do you know?” she points at a photograph of Andres “how do you know him Olivia?”she replied with “he dropped me off here that day when mummy & daddy found me at the gate” Fernando thought how the hell I am going to tell them Two about this, maybe I never will!
Trudie I think E needs us again.... Poor bloke is getting neglected.....
No hot loving...... Think ya need to fuel up the flying machine again......
See, I said it before today, somewhere else, I feel sorry for the guy.
But we also have to convince June that she MUST enter us into the story again. If she refuses, what can we do? We can only be of any help to her and Enrique if she lets us into the story again.
We would have a soothing influence, right?
