You're sitting in an old school tavern, not your usual hang-out, but an interesting place. Some people may not be who/what they seem to be. Of course. Give us a story, your choice of genre. Oh, and you need to incorporate a random object. Throw the dice, pick your object from here.
I'm late with this prompt, but I'll back-date it to last Friday. It's still due this Friday, November 15th. 1000 words or fewer.
