Integra bit back a laugh as Alucard gave her the most plaintive, googly-eyed look he could manage. “No. My order still stands.”

Alucard pouted. “You know I have issues with running water.”

“And you know I care more about Hellsing’s reputation than your issues.” Integra held up a report. “Do you have any idea how many bloodsucking insects you’ve picked up?”

“Enough to ‘start a flea circus’?”

“Don’t make me repeat myself, Alucard.”

“Yes, my Master.”

Seras watched a dejected Alucard leave the room. “What’s the matter with him?”

Integra almost smiled. “I told him to go take a bath.”

Unnecessarily Long and Tiresome Authoress’ Notes:
Somewhat inspired by a picture on Deviantart by pu-sama of Integra trying to wash Alucard in Hellhound form.
