Hi. What is the subject of the underlined part? And what does the underlined part literally mean? I know それ refers to the bookshelf and 向き合う means “facing”, but I’m not sure about the rest.
Thank you.

The subject is 士道, as same as 歩みを進める.
The meaning is the same as それと向き合うように.

Thank you. So it’s “in order to face the bookshelf, 士道 walked to the middle of the room”?

Thank you again.
This is a trivial thing, but does それ also include 十香?

It's more likely それ refers to her, 十香が部屋の左手前ー壁際に置かれた棚の前あたりに立っているのと向き合う.
