White Eyed 'Floating' Skull Haunts Marshall County, Alabama Resident

A couple are exploring the woods at night, near Grant, Alabama, when they realize that they are being followed. On their way back to the house, a floating skull with bright white eyes appears.

The following account was recently referred to me:

"The date is August 9, 2020. I recently started dating this girl I meet online. She and I instantly clicked when we found out both of us believed in things like Skinwalkers and Bigfoot. So eventually we got comfortable enough to meet in person and she suggested I come out to her place and walk around the woods. Me being me, I instantly agreed to do that. She lives on the very outskirts of Grant, Alabama (Marshall County), right near the Cathedral Caverns. So her property was located on the same mountain as the caverns. She had about a 4-acre property up there so we explored it.

We head out at about 1 or 2 o'clock in the morning with our flashlights and knives in hand. We're out there for about 30 minutes when it started to rain a little bit, so we turned around and headed back to her house. On the way back she keeps looking behind us. I notice this and ask her if she thinks we're being followed. She says 'yes' and I reply that I felt the same way and let's just get back to the house.

About 20 minutes go by and we are back in the clearing of her yard. I take about 15 steps into the clearing and just freeze on the spot and turned around. Right on the edge of the tree line, less than 40 feet away, I see an animals skull hovering about 8 and a half feet off the ground with solid glowing white eyes. If I had to guess, it looked like a bull skull. She turns and sees me standing there staring at this 8 and a half foot tall being and runs over, grabs me by the arm and pulls me up to and onto the porch. When we got to the porch the thing was gone.

A couple of hours go by. I'm out in my car vaping by myself. She had already gone to sleep and I was still trying to comprehend what I had seen. It was at that moment I felt something push up against the rear of my car. Not like it hit it but like how a cat will push up against somebody. I look through my driver side rearview and can see the same animal skull sticking out from behind my car. I did my best to stay as quiet as I could as to not alarm it of my presence. Then somehow it locked eyes with me through the rearview mirror and it was like it got a hold of my mind and was trying to make me get out of my car and walk into the woods. I got as far as popping the door handle to unlatch the door before i snapped out of it and closed the door and locking it. I closed my eyes and pretended it wasn't there.

About five and a half minutes go by and I open my eyes again and it was gone. I couldn't see it anywhere. So I opened my door and sprinted inside and stayed there until the sun came up. I didnt even sleep.

The sunrise started to roll up over the horizon and I was walking out to my car to leave. My girlfriend gave me a hug and a kiss and told me to be safe. I'm glad I didn't tell her then, that the whole time we were standing next to my car with me facing the woods, I could still see it....standing there and staring at me unmoving.

To this day, and I know I'll eventually tell her, she has no idea the thing has been watching my every move with extreme attention to detail." BI
