In this scene the creature is attempting to make contact with the residents in the cottage. He's waited for Felix Agatha and Safie to leave so he can have a higher chance of being accepted by someone who can't judge his physical appearance like DeLacy since he is blind.
As the creature comes in he asks DeLacy is he's permitted to stay at the cottage to rest for awhile till his "friend" come back. DeLacy keeps questioning who these "friends" are but the creature doesn't tell him in fear of being rejected.
Felix Agatha and Safie come back home after awhile and notice something different. They see the creature in the house with DeLacy and are scared to as to what it could be or if it harmed DeLacy
They stand and wonder what the creature is Agatha passes out and Safie tends to her while Felix is full of anger. After a minute or so he starts to attack the creature.
After Felix is done attacking the creature they go back in the house for a few minutes to grab some items. A bit later they come out and leave the house and no one is left there
After the family leaves the creature is left alone and is angry at himself that he got rejected again. A little while later the creature burned down house the family had lived in
