"You are different to the other girls in the harem," he pointed out while watching her closely "How have you come to such a place as this?"
It was hard to place how she ended up in such a miserable situation. “I don’t know, sir. One day my father died, and as I had to make ends meet, here I am.”
"I don’t know what they have told you, mademoiselle, but there is nothing you have to fear from me." Why was he trying to comfort her? He hardly knew her!
She smiled a little. “Thank you, sir. It would be an honour to be taught by you.”

What’s a “half-mourning” dress? Mourning in the front, party in the back?
Half-Mourning was the third stage of mourning for a widow. She would be expected to mourn her husband for at least two years, the stages being Full Mourning, Second Mourning and Half-Mourning. The different stages regulated what they would be wearing, with Full Mourning being all black and with no ornamentation, including the wodow’s veil, and the stages after that introducing some jewellery and modest ornamentation. When in Half-Mourning you would gradually include fabrics in other colors and sort of ease your way out of mourning.
Wow, I am happy you made that joke so I could interpert it as a serious question and have an excuse to ramble on about clothing customs of the past, I am a historical fashion nerd.
That’s very informative, but I’m going to stick with my original head canon:
I love both the informed fashion history and the hilariously off-the-wall halves of this post.
