Despite the fact that Michael had already awoken, Vivian herself was still half-asleep. She had no awareness of what was going on, but she felt rather comfortable, so she felt no rush in waking up. As the minutes pass, she slowly started to come to, her eyes remaining closed the entire time. Even when she had the realization that somebody was with her, there wasn't much of a reaction, as that apparently hadn't surprised her a whole lot. It wasn't until her mind started putting the details of the previous day back together that her eyes suddenly opened. Seeing the room around her confirmed her suspicions. The size of the arms around her, too.

"Uh... Mornin'." Vivian didn't look back at him, but she could feel his heartbeat and his breathing, letting her know that he was most definitely awake. How she got into this position, she didn't know, but she also didn't make much of an effort to escape.

The fact that Vivian was not actively trying to kill him was a good sign. "What...what happened last night?" he said, his memory of the night fuzzy at best. He did not recall anything that would cause this, however. And that is what he was concerned about.

He thought about the events of the previous night for a little bit. He could recall drinking a lot, then they got some pizza. And that was about it. The rest of it was a whole lot of nothing, and he woke up here with Vivian in his arms. In my arms. OH SHIT! Michael quickly moved his arms to allow Vivian to leave his grasp, his face turning a deep red.

Vivian moved as well, though not as suddenly as him. Scooting away a little, she couldn't help but chuckle at the absurdity of the situation, even if it was obviously not so entertaining to Michael. A quick look at his face made it clear that he wanted an answer, but she stayed silent for a couple seconds, considering her options. There was the truth, which would be the nicest and most considerate path. Of course, she could also make up a crazy story about their drunken shenanigans that would result in a lot of laughs, at least for her. Deciding to stick with the first option, she cleared her throat, leaning back against the couch calmly.

"It was definitely interesting." Looking up briefly as she attempted to properly recollect everything, she nodded a few seconds later before turning towards him again. "You drank a lot. Like, a lot. In all fairness, I was also drunk, but you passed out before I did." While she wanted to soften the blow of what she had to say next, she was always terrible at not being blunt, and that probably showed. "We talked a lot. You said that you liked me. I said the same thing. We hugged, and then I think you blacked out. That's about it, really." she giggled towards the end, a childish grin growing on her face that she couldn't force away.

20 seconds. That's how long Michael sat there utterly frozen by this revelation. The gears in his head were turning, but there seemed to be an error in the system. For those twenty seconds, he stopped talking, he stopped looking, and for the most part, he stopped breathing.

After being frozen, he took a deep breath, held up one finger to pause Vivian's retort, and punched himself directly on the right temple. His head snapped quickly, and he stayed looking to his left shoulder for a few seconds. He slowly turned his head straight forward and looked at the wall. "So...that really happened. Huh." he said, mostly dumbfounded by the situation.

As the time of silence went on, Vivian started to grow bored, her interest in his reaction disappearing by the second. Leaning her head against her hand, it wasn't until he hit himself that she started paying attention again, giving him an inquisitive look in response to the action. "Yes, yes it did. It was kinda fun, but we didn't get to chat for very long. Anyway... Now that we both have that information and are fine with it, what should we do?" As socially capable as she was, Vivian had few romantic relationships throughout her life, most of which weren't very meaningful. While she was fine with going down that path, she still had no idea if he was equally interested, considering that he had revealed his thoughts while he was incredibly drunk. For a moment, it appeared as if she wanted to add something towards the end, but she stopped herself from saying a word until he responded.

Michael thought about it for as long as it was necessary for him to come to a solution. Approximately 2 seconds later, he responded. "I mean, if you're okay with dating a schmuck like me, I can't possibly say no." he said, hoping that his face would stop being red at some point.

He was really inexperienced with relationships, so how they got started and what was official was beyond his knowledge. He was nervous about her response, and proceeded to twiddle his thumbs as he waited.

Listening to his response, she couldn't help but roll her eyes. "Really, with that again?" Vivian frowned a little, annoyed that he had reverted to the same levels of self-confidence that he had been showing the previous night. "You gotta give yourself more credit, dude. Like, I'm no professional, but I'm pretty sure that a lot of your problems are just in your head. If I thought you were a 'schmuck', we probably wouldn't be having this conversation." She shrugged. "Maybe not, but this worked out pretty well, I'd say. If you try and face your other issues head on, you might be surprised how it ends. As you obviously didn't expect this."

Realizing soon after finishing her statement that she hadn't given him a proper answer, she spoke up again, smiling this time. "That's still a yes, by the way."

Michael grew a wide grin as she finished up, finally saying yes. He proceeded to grab her in another tight hug, mirroring his actions from the previous night unbeknownst to him. And while it was not the most gracious way it could have gone, Michael was happy with the end result. And now, he's got not only a friend, but a girlfriend at that. And he could not be happier about it.
