masters and doctorate in physical therapy. He also is certiﬁed by the American
Physical Therapists and is a Certiﬁed Sports Nutritionist.
And now he’s
getting you in shape. “I feel that God has given me a calling to help people,”
said Cosby. It was through his own injury that taught Cosby about “getting
people back to their prior level of function.” He said he want to motivate
“people to stay on the course” so they can meet their own individual goals.

It's Miss Evans!
I approach the tank and
investigate it, looking for signs of movement from Miss Evans. She floats
lifelessly in the water. Her hair flows, carried by the waves and her face
appears angelic. I notice the softness of her eyelids and the elegant curve of
her mouth as she floats. But the beautiful view is interrupted by a dramatic
jolt of her body as her eyes open and a cluster of bubbles escape her mouth and
nose. She stares at me and thrashes, eyes bloodshot as she slaps at the glass.
I gaze back at her powerless, examining the tank for locks or levers; some way
to release her from the watery prison.
I'm helpless as she
continues to struggle for air. Then, an image flickers from the corner of my
eye as a side door opens and Maxwell walks out, holding a staff of his own.
plead. "It's Miss Evans. Please help her!"
He shakes his head and
lifts his staff in his hands, twirling it in a circle as he begins to slowly
walk sideways, circling me like a predator, encasing me in a hedge of danger.
"Hold your ground. Make
a choice: fight or flight," Maxwell bellows.
Miss Evans' banging on
the glass behind me blends with the pounding of my heart. I lift my staff and
spread my feet, turning my attention to Maxwell. As much as I'm afraid for my
own safety, I find it impossible not to focus on Miss Evans. Her muffled scream
comes from the tank and I look away from Maxwell to check on her. Her hands
clutch her neck. Her face is bright red with a tinge of blue around her lips.
"No," I scream,
stepping back away from the tank.
Raising my staff above my
head, I crank back and rip it down, slamming it into the side of the tank, as I
yell. The water explodes from the crack in the tank and glass shards crash to
the floor below. I swing once more and this time the entire tank shatters,
launching Miss Evans into the air toward me. I catch her in my arms and the
force of the water propels us backward onto the floor. She coughs, gasping for
air. I hold her in my arms and caress her head. Her sobbing brittles me and I'm
relieved to see her skin color returning to its natural tanned shade.
We're here, an odd place,
an unfamiliar place. But as I hold her delicately in my arms, it makes me feel
like I'm heading back home. Not the place where I live now, but the place where
I used to live, when mom and dad were still alive. The way she rests in my arms
beckons me to a time when I used to hold my kitten, Priceless. She'd climb into
my lap during the thunder storms. I was her comforter. Priceless would purr
when I did it. And now, so many years later, I find myself feeling the same way
as I hold Miss Evans. Her soft body pressing into my skin—warming me—calls me
to hug her even closer with each passing second. The times when I needed
someone to hold me reflect in my mind like a mirror as I stare at her. Her
chest rises as her heart beat quickens, mixing evenly with her breaths. As
warmth returns to her body, a subtle tremor comes over her; like a purr.
I can't resist. I have to
do it. I must do it. I hug deeply, ignoring the senseless urge to pull away.
praises Maxwell, exiting the room as the lights come back on.
Miss Evans resting in my
arms and I comfort her, caressing her hair. She finally looks up at me and
mouths, "Thank you."
