Her stomach seemed to churn as she looked out at the city of Seattle. Heights were not her thing, but...It was so pretty Maddie couldn't get herself to look away, despite the nearly tear-jerking fear of falling. Falling was an impossible feat, of course, since the entire deck was "sealed" by a wall of tinted glass. They probably didn't want anyone jumping...Or falling. She still couldn't help but be afraid. Being up so high made her dizzy, she just had to stop looking. In mid-blink, she kept her eyes shut, and turned away from the view, looking around at the deck.
It was night time, which darkened the lit observation deck, despite the unnatural light spread about. And it was deserted. Everyone had probably gone off to eat dinner, leaving Madeline in mechanical silence. There was, of course, the hum of the lights, and the childish entertainment chortled on, despite the lack of attention it was being paid. It was...Nice. Today had been her day off, she'd decided when she woke up. It was oddly convenient, since she didn't have anything to do anyway. But her legs seemed to ache with the lack of effort that they were being forced to do. Upon her arrival to the Needle, just half-an-hour ago, she'd asked if there were stairs. The receptionist gave her an odd look, and no answer. So, the only exercise she'd gotten was on her way over here.
Taking in a single deep breath, she made herself as quiet as possible, to listen for anyone that might have been on the other side of the deck, but it was quiet. She felt just like dancing all around the deck, but how stupid would that be? One accidental glance out the window, and she would go down. And what if someone came up? It wasn't like she owned the Space Needle, though that would have been pretty awesome. So, she yawned, and twirled gracefully back over to the windows. Maybe if she got over her fear first, she could be stupid and dance on the deck.
