In retrospect, he may feel a little bad later for this, seeing how the poor man is a bit mad still. On the other hand, he figures Strange will forgive him once he realizes what's going on. Well, possibly. That much no doubt depends on how open Childermass is about trying to explain the how of this trick.

Regardless, none of that stops him from disappearing again the moment Strange is distracted by blowing out that batch of candles. The flickering flames going out plunge the trailer into even more shadow and he manages to pick one out that falls across where he's sitting, though he does make a move as if to stand before he's gone that might be caught out of the corner of an eye. Where he goes isn't too far at all, stepping out through the trailer's shadow outside so he can eavesdrop for the right moment to reappear.

But to Strange, it'll seem like he was there and then... not.
