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.........
Of course I will do whatever I can, June, No problem hun. I was just kidding, But then again, I won't be near enough to talk to him, I'm afraid. :-((

A Fun But Silly Story Part 2
We made love & we cuddled one another afterwards, Enrique went to sleep I lay in his arms, my head resting on his chest with my right hand stroking his body, I couldn’t sleep I must`ve been awake for what seemed like ages, i lifted my head up to check the time it was only 1.00am.
I heard Ella cry on the baby monitor i got up, Enrique didn’t even stir!, I put on his t-shirt & went to see to Ella, she had her nappy changed, & she went back to sleep almost straight away.
I went back in to our bedroom dug some clothes out got dressed I looked at Him he was sleeping so peacefully I turned around & went down stairs; I made myself a cup of tea, & sat in the kitchen, thinking about my life, tears poured down my face. I got up walked outside to get some fresh air as I went to sit down I heard a voice “What`s up Hun cant you sleep?” I looked it was Enrique walking towards me with a box of tissues, “what are these for?” He laughed saying “you! I heard you crying in the kitchen June, You promised me you were fine” He sat down next to me put his arms around me & I sobbed my heart out in to his shoulder, “let it all out June, I think in the morning I will phone Carlos & ask him if we can chat, I think its the only way we can move forward with this June & get on with our lives” I leaned up to him, kissed him on the lips, “Thank You, & I think your right, I need to see them both if I`m honest with you” I got up took his hand smiled at him saying “come on lets go back to bed” We headed off upstairs hand In hand got into bed holding one another tightly.
The next morning I woke up to the sound of Ella crying & Enrique talking to her “Sshhh Ella your wake your mama up & we don’t want that do we” I walked in to her room & Enrique was walking round patting her back gently, she saw me started laughing, he turned round saw me & he smiles at me walks to me kisses me on the lips & then I give Ella a kiss too she grabs my cheeks, as I kiss her.
We walk down stairs & head in to the kitchen by this time I realised it was only 7am! I looked at Enrique “you have got to be kidding me” He laughs because he knows I have realised the time, I slap him on the arm, even Ella laughs.
After breakfast Enrique rings Carlos he answers it “Hey Enrique, what`s up?” Enrique sighs “Look I have something to ask you, I know you probably thought I would be the last person to call you today, I was wondering If June & I could come round & see you, & maybe Sophie” Enrique heard nothing back; he said “Hello Carlos are you there?” “erm, Yeah, Are you sure June is ok with this?” Enrique looks at me says “Yep, she is cool with It, she just needs to close this chapter Carlos, or she can`t move on” Carlos replies “Look this is going to sound hard, but I do really need to ask Sophie, if she is ok with it all” Enrique interrupted “of course, look ask Sophie, then call me back either way man” They hang up shrugged his shoulders as he walks towards me “He is going to speak to Sophie, see what she says & ring back”
He sat down beside me kissed me on the cheek, said “Don`t worry, Sophie might not be ready to see you yet, you have to remember she probably feeling very guilty still” I sigh “I know, hey I`ve been thinking, I don’t like the name Curtis any more, I want something different” He looks at me rubs his chin & laughs “well, what name you got in mind then June?” Laughing back at him I say “You know what?? No idea, all I know is I don’t like that name!” Enrique pulls a face at me & I just slap him on the arm.
Mean while Carlos walks up to Sophie who is in the spare room, he knocks on the door & she answers it “Hey” she says “Hey” he replies back “Enrique just phoned” She shouts at him as she walks away from the open door “I DONT CARE THAT HE PHONED, i DONT CARE THAT I TOOK ELLA, I DONT WANT TO SEE THEM, CANT YOU GET THAT THROUGH YOUR THICK SCULL CARLOS” He looks at Sophie with tears in his eyes “But Sophie, you have to face them sooner or later” she turns round to him & throws a vase screams at him “GET OUT” He ducks at the vase just misses him, he says “The police will be here later to take you to your appointment, make sure you go” He just walks away from her shutting the door as he does.
Hmmmm well, we`re have to wait n see Bex...
