Here is the final part of my fanfic I Wish I Was You. Hope you enjoy! 🙂
Title: I Wish I Was You
Disclaimer: I don’t know Union J. What I’m writing is complete fiction.
Jaymi stayed the night with Olly sleeping on the sofa. Mid-way through the night Olly came out of the bedroom and approached him at the sofa.
“Josh, wake up.”
Jaymi hadn’t really been asleep. Just had his eyes closed over.
“What is it ba- Olly?”
“Just all these strange feelings I’m feeling lately.”
“Like me and Jaymi. Me and you. I honestly don’t know where I’m at.”
“In what way?”, Jaymi asked sitting up and making room for Olly to sit next to him on the sofa.
“Just lately I feel closer to you. It isn’t that I want to undo everything that Jaymi and I have built up over the years. It’s just that I feel a connection with you. Like I did with him before. I never thought I could have a connection like that with anyone else the way I had it with him. I can’t deny how I’m feeling anymore though. It’s there.”
Jaymi silently wished in his mind that he and Josh had never made those stupid wishes that night. It was the usual story with life. You always wanted what you couldn’t have and took for granted the people in your life who actually completed your world. He just wanted his life back and he silently wished he could have it back. Have Olly back. It was clear to him that Olly loved him for what was inside him. For who he was. That’s clearly why the poor guy was so confused. He knew he shouldn’t kiss him and yet those lips. Those lips were drawing him in. Soft, tender, sensual. And so he kissed him feeling Olly’s resistance as he pulled away. But then he seen Olly’s eyes flash with surprise and he fainted.
Josh was sitting with JJ and George. He was keeping silent. It didn’t seem to be wise to speak about how he was feeling about his new body transformation. It was clear that the outcome of that would only be a lot of raised eyebrows. He wished things were back to normal. Both he and Jaymi were under immense strain trying to live each other’s lives. Suddenly George and JJ looked at him in shock.
“Josh …”, JJ began.
He was so shocked that he had been called his own name for the first time in ages.
“You’ve just turned into Josh!”, George says.
“I’ve always been. Me and Jaymi turned into each other!”
“I don’t know George. I don’t know myself. We wished it in an argument and it just happened.”
“Olly, wake up!”, Jaymi said slapping him slightly on the side of the face to wake him.
In doing so he noticed that his hands were back to his own. No wonder Olly fainted, he thought and continued to try to wake him.
Gradually Olly came back to reality.
“J, what the hell? How is this happening?! How did you just turn into yourself like by magic or something? No, I’m sorry. It’s me. I’ve just had a vision that wasn’t there … It’s all this stress lately …”
“You didn’t have a vision babe. Josh and me turned into each other and now I’ve turned back …”
“No wonder Josh hit me …”
“No, he shouldn’t have done that! I am so angry with him …”
“J be fair. He freaked out. If I changed into one of his girlfriends and Josh was trying it on with me I think I’d knock him out too! You are friends. Forget it. I’m just glad it wasn’t you. And now I need a glass of …”
“Water? I could get you it.”
“I was thinking something stronger. A lot stronger!”
“I get you some alcohol.”, Jaymi replied and kissed him passionately before going to get Olly some much needed alcohol.
Josh was sitting playing Candy Crush the next day when Jaymi came in.
“Hey …”, Jaymi began.
“I shouldn’t have hit Olly. It was out of order man …”
“It was but it’s been a mad time. We need to put this behind us. Heck I’m getting married at the end of the year. You have a wedding to attend …”
“You still want me there?”
“We both do.”
They hug in a macho fashion.
“Come on Jay, we better catch this bus.”
They walk out to the tour bus where George and JJ are already on board waiting. As they step on to join them in the distance stands the old man they met on the night of their argument. He is smiling. His work here is done and now he is off to help more people value what and more importantly who they have in their life.
Last night the Philadelphia rose Maria Walsh (27) was crowned The Rose of Tralee winner in a well-deserved triumph! The new Rose of Tralee said following her win,
“Wow, I appreciate it – thank you very much. The calibre of Irish women is phenomenal. I mean look at these.”
She began her celebrations with her new friends the other 31 roses who made it to the two-night televised final in The Dome in Kerry while country singer Nathan Carter, who had also performed for the crowd earlier in the night, sang the traditional closing song entitled, “The Rose of Tralee”.
Walsh, who wore a stunning and understated dress on the night, is from Boston in Massachusetts and moved to Shrule in Mayo along with her family 20 years ago. After she graduated in Journalism and Visual Media from Griffith College the newly crowned Rose moved to New York which she admitted was a great city but didn’t suit her “work-life balance” so she subsequently moved to Philadelphia.
In the course of her interview with host Dáithí Ó Sé she spoke about her cousin Teresa Molloy (19) who was one of four women killed in a crash in Galway in 2009 following a day out shopping in Sligo.
“It’s moments like this, like being in the Rose of Tralee, that make you really seize the day and appreciate life and take everything as it comes. She has given me a lot of good luck to date, so I know she’s looking down on me and my family.”
British boyband Union J also sung as part of the festival.
I was really sad to hear about the death of Union J star Josh Cuthbert’s and his mate Jordan’s cat Oreo.
I love animals and I know the bond that exists between a pet and their owner from personal experience. I had a dog called Cookie for 12 years and he died in 2010. My family and I were heartbroken.
We still in a world sadly where people say it’s only a cat or it’s only a dog but pet owners know the pain that other pet owners go through on losing their pet when they have been through it themselves. You don’t just lose a pet, you lose your best friend, a pet who is like part of your family because they have been with you so long and a part of yourself really.
I was very sad to hear of Oreo’s death. Oreo was this sweet, little cat and I adored him as I do all the Union J pets. It is heartbreaking and then you see his little face again and it’s even more sadder.
Josh posted the following tweets on Twitter about Oreo:
RIP Mr.Oreo 😢 Cheekiest tinker around. He wasnt just our cat he was my best friend. So so gutted, never forgotten❤️ pic.twitter.com/FYHWaGwiLD
Union J Are Set To Have A More Mature Country/Folk Sound For Their New Album!
Union J’s second album will be more acoustic than their first album, band member George Shelley has revealed.
We’ve been working on some new stuff and we’re really enjoying it, it’s very different. It’s a lot more acoustic. It’s more like folk and country music than before.We’re happy we’re getting to choose what we want to put out there as before we were kind of told what we were meant to be doing.”, Shelley said.
Bandmate Jaymi said he hopes that their fresh new music will display how much they’ve grown when it’s released.
“We’re a bit older now, you know? And it’s been a year since X Factor so we want to show that we’ve matured and I think that will come across in our new stuff.”
(I’m almost the same age and I haven’t really matured that much. It’s just scary when you hear another 1990’s person saying that! So immature, ain’t I? :-))
Jaymi also admitted that he thinks their new single might even be a contender for a Number One in Britain and added modestly,
“We’ve worked really hard on it and we’re really happy with it so hopefully people will like it too.”
Union have denied rumors that they will be moving to Los Angeles while they are recording their new album.
Josh said on Twitter,
“Seeing all these rumours about us moving to LA/America! ……this isn’t true BUT I’m not saying we won’t be there very very soon.”
While his bandmate George added,
“We saw rumours that we were splitting up and we were just like, no not at all! Basically the idea is that we’re going over to LA in a month or so to record the video and record the new single. I think just everyone’s got a bit mixed up with us going to LA and like splitting up.”
But JJ did speak about their pending new album and revealed that the band may have the first single off the record already:
“So guys I think we might have heard are next single this week!!!!!! I’m soooo excited, think your going to like this one ???????? #unionjsingle.”
Josh admits he would have tried out for The Voice UK if things had not worked out with The X Factor!
Union J’s Josh Cuthbert has revealed that he would have tried out for The Voice in the UK if he had been unsuccessful in his The X Factor bid.
“I would have just kept trying and would’ve done it through any avenue possible. So yeah, I probably would have gone on ‘The Voice’ or something like that, but I’m glad we managed to make it through ‘X Factor’.”
Josh was speaking at Union J’s live set at M&M’s World in London’s Leicester Square where the band sang many of their album tracks including Carry You, Beautiful Life and Loving You Is Easy for an exclusive crowd in celebration of the launch of the shop’s brand new personalised printer service
Josh also spoke about their fans and revealed that he thinks that each of them gets the same amount of attention as each other from their male and female fans.
“I think because we’re all quite different … there’s not one of us that gets more attention than the others, because we all appeal to different people.”, the Union J hunk said.
