Assignment process (paper money)

So I had a paper money trade on FXE

Sold 112 strike call
Bought 113 strike call

FXE closed on Friday at $12.51

End of day Friday I see a loss, as well as this morning (assignment was not showing). Then this evening, I notice an $86 profit.

This is what I think happened...

- I got assigned the 112 strike call at a stock price of 112.51 = $.51 ($51) loss
(I am now short -100 shares of FXE at $112.51)

- Price opens today at 111.75, and proceeds to close at 111.14

- I went short at 112.51, with current price of 111.14 = $137 profit - $51 loss = $86 net return

Now being currently short 100 shares of FXE is causing a $5557 margin requirement. With real money, if I didn't have $5557 available to cover this margin, would the broker have initiated a margin call and closed my position on Monday open at $111.75?
Or would they likely have margin called immediately on Friday at $12.51?

Edit - From reading further, I think that even if margin called on Friday, I would have 24 hrs to cover prior to the broker liquidating the position?
So I'm guessing if that is the case, they would have liquidated it sometime on Monday at market price?
