Kalista was practically gagging in the corner of the cave as that took place. Poor Kalista

Ember listened quietly watching as he worked on the elk. When he finished she slowly sat down and hummed out silently as she found herself deep in thought.
"Firstly. Overhunting is indeed a huge issue. One that is already posing problems. It can't be helped until dragons are able to fly freely without fear of being shot down by hunters.. Until hunters are solved, food will always be an issue. The food situation is also in hell due to wyverns also needing food, and their aggressive tendancies in getting it. With that being said, dragons wont need to be taught how to set up traps, I'm sure some are a bit tricky to make, but we can teach ourselves by using the example of yours. Just knowing that the traps are there and realizing how effective they are will allow them to open up their eyes to look past their hatred for humans and see further the benefit we could have by siding with them and working alongside them. In summary, don't worry about overhunting becoming worse with the traps. The positive effects will outweigh the negatives and will open up a new possibility of changing our food situation completely." she said before sighing out.
"Now about the trading situation.. That could indeed be the main way you start grabbing the attention of dragons. Though, the best way of going about it is to have Raito and Cynder be the traders and communicators. Having you as a human down there will guarantee you get kicked out. Too many dragons will see you and too many will look past the benefits of hearing you out. revealing that you both live here will have to wait. If you do indeed decide to set up your own market, have Cynder and Raito pose as bonded dragons who lost their riders. Yes, I'm aware of how bonds work and how the pain never ceases until the bonded dragon or human die themselves. However, as far as many dragons are concerned, they don't know whether that's the truth or not since they've most likely never seen what happens when a bonded dragons loses his bond.. I'm sure it'd be easy to convince them that that part of the bonding isn't actually true. So, have Cynder and Raito pose as dragons who once lived with people and know just how wonderful and beneficial they can be. Spread the word to the customers that the meat comes from the human kingdoms and that all it takes.. is a little scale or two." Ember said as she flicked off an old scale from her neck. "And if anyone asks, just have them say their my cousins friend. They're dragons, not wyverns or humans so.. Trust won't be a terrible issue with them. Our kind tends to be a bit biased towards trusting other dragons vs any other species. With that being said, this would all have to take weeks to have unfold.. It may not go as smoothly as we could hope.. But showing that you guys live here is indeed a bit too early of an option. The idea of befriending humans once again needs to be a slow and gentle process. If rushed, it'll only agitated those with strong beliefs. They wont have enough time to really think over the events taking place." Ember said with a silent huff. "That is what I think anyway.. I'm sure there are some flaws in my reasoning, but you asked for my opinion.. So I gave you my best of it." She said with a nervous smile.

Kalista stared at Ember in a bit of shock as she finished her explanation. She explained it so clearly, it kinda made her jealous. She wished she knew how to get her thoughts out as well as Ember..

Cyrus listens patiently until Ember is done, " posing them as bonded dragons who've lost their riders... that's a good idea. wouldn't have thought of that one. sounds like a plan, we'll set up a market and though I'll at least need to go to the human kingdom to do the trades to get the meat, Cynder or Raito can quick slip me back here while they do the trading. And of course we can set up some of the traps before hand near where we plan to have the trading take place to demonstrate what they look like." he rubs his chin, " the hunter issue can;t be solved until the issue between dragons and humans is resolved, we need more dragon riders simple as that. so for now the main thing will be setting up trade between dragons and humans through Cynder and Raito. Perhaps even Ashe can come with us to help carry more if it goes well. I don;t have a ton in funds set aside, but i'll use what i have to buy the first load of meat."

Ember slide her knocked off scale over to Cyrus with her tail. "I know the color is a badly faded but would that be of any use..?" She asked a bit hopefully. Ember was a beautifully green colored dragon but the scale she was able to easily flick off was greyed out and dulled. It wasn't the most beautiful of scales. It wouldn't be worth much especially compared to what most hunters are able to sell without getting caught. Kalista stared at it for a moment with a bit of a skeptical look before smiling up at Ember. "Yup! That should help us out alot. Thanks Ember." she quickly said before Cyrus could say anything. Ember smiled a gentle smile and nodded. "Good deal. Dragons don't really shed their scales unless they are injured, but I'll do my best to get you more from my dumbass friends who fight like crazy." She said with a strangely calm tone.

Cyrus chuckles, " every one helps. Even these that aren't as pretty have utility. But im sure dragons will be saving every last one when we start trading meat for them. especially if i can bring good fatty beef." he smiles, " this is good. even if i can only bring a little at first, i'll bet i can get enough scales to double what i can get the next run. we'll be able to get more than we can carry in no time."

Kalista stared at Cyrus for a moment before turning away from him, her hand gently squeezing her arm. She was just so frustrated..

Cynder made her way back into the cave. She stood beside Raito and tilted her head some. "Did I miss something..? Kalista looks all grumpy in the background and something oddly is tellin me Ember just spilled an essay worth of info.." She said in confusion

Cyrus sighs, " Kalista thinks we should try and stay undetected, and isn;t pleased that we've told her that was never really an option. And yes, Ember gave us a lot of good information. Raito and i will fly to the human kingdoms today after we check the traps to get as much meat as i can buy, and you and he will pretend to be dragons who have lost their riders and know the usefulness of humans so are trading meat from the human realm for scales and trinkets from the dragons, and back again." he sits and unrolls the elk hide, getting to work scraping the inside free of the fleshy part.

Cynders ears perked up and her eyes seemed to sparkle at the idea. “You mean we get to go to the Trading area!?” She asked, the tip of her tail tapping the cave stone ground excitedly. “SCORE!” She exclaimed before taping her paws repetitively on the ground impatiently. “When fo we get to gooo?”

Kalista watched her in annoyance. She then glanced down at her chest burn before back up to her and sighed. “Nothin I say will matter so whatever..”

Cyrus chuckles, " tomorrow. let me finish this and get it soaking and we'll go check our traps. then i have a job for you. Raito can fly faster and further alone, it's nothing against you but that's what we'll do for the first few trips to buy meat from the human kingdom since it'll be faster. But i need you to dig another pitfall trap closer to the mountain to show the other dragons how to make them. Im going to teach you and Kalista how to set up the deadfalls too, they're easy once you know how to whittle the trigger correctly. we might not get that one figured out yet today, but it's worth working on. at the least the pitfalls will work well." he soon has the underlayer of skin scraped off the hide and he rolls it up again, hefting it onto his shoulder to carry it outside. He drops it into the pool with the oak chips and puts a rock on it to hold it in before going back to the cave, " alright, ready to go check the traps?"

Cynder blinked some at the idea of her making another pitfall. That idea was a bit more unlikely than her simply flying around checking the traps.. She'd be digging up dirt into her chest as she scooped it out of the hole, not to mention dirt would be flinging everywhere on her chest and shoulders as she simply dug. She remained quiet however and simply gave a nod in response. It'd be a bit painful, but it wouldn't have any dangers to it. She was willing to at least try and see if she could handle it. If not, then oh well.

Kalista made her way onto Cynders back in response to Cyrus bringing up the traps. "Yeah.. We;re ready I guess.." She responded in annoyance

Cyrus sees Cynder hesitate, " it doesn't have to be as big or deep as the other, they only need an example. we're also not on a time crunch, Raito and i won't be back until tomorrow morning to mid day, depending on how quickly i can get my trading done so you can take it slowly. if not, it's not a big deal. lets go get those traps checked though, the more we have to trade the better." he climbs up onto Raito and the dragon leaps into the air.
