The world seemed to be in slow motion as Jungkook took deep breaths, surveying his surroundings.
There were eight—no ten (there were two snipers on opposites sides of the second floor mezzanine) armed men currently facing him. He stood still, feeling his lover’s presence behind him, which makes it even harder to make a decision whether to engage, or not.
“Y/N… baby, don’t move.” He whispered when he felt her shallow breathing and the slight tremble from her body. He knew she was scared, she had every right to be, and it kills Jungkook on every aspect. But he couldn’t risk one of those snipers going off at her.
“Sorry.” She whispered, which sounded more like a choked sob and Jungkook wanted to turn around and kiss her; to assure her that it was going to be alright and that she shouldn’t be sorry.

Matt Beaven has also been working with Jaguar for some time, and it shows in his acute understanding of the brand. His line, form and proportion is bang on in his sketchwork, and should be the focus of students looking to learn and improve!

Exterior Designer. Notable designs include Renault DeZir Concept, Renault Alpine A110-50, Renault Clio 2013.
Under the guidance of Laurens Van Der Acker, Yann has been pivotal in the development of Renault’s new exterior form language. The ‘design by volumes’ philosophy evident in the DeZir, which Yann himself compares favourably with the Jaguar C-X75, has successfully shown the world that there is more to automotive design than 'German precision’; emotional design is the key.
These are Jaguar’s official pics of the C-X75 concept taken in advance of the Lord Mayor’s Show, turns out it was being driven by SPECTRE stunt driver Martin Ivanov.
