Meaning of the Idiom

hou qi zhi xiu(an up-and-coming youngster

In the Eastern Jin Dynasty, Wang Chen showed his talent as a teenager and was highly appreciated by his friends and relatives. His uncle Fan Ning, a famous scholar at that time, also held Wang Chen in high regard. When famous scholars visited him, he would always let Wang Chen be present to receive him.

Once, when Wang Chen went to visit his uncle, he met Zhang Xuan, a famous scholar. Zhang Xuan had heard that Wang Chen was of great interest and wanted to talk to him. He was older than Wang Chen and naturally wanted Wang Chen to greet him first, so he sat upright and waited. Unexpectedly, Wang Chen saw Zhang Xuan like this, he despised him. They sat opposite each other for a while, and Zhang Xuan left disgruntled.

Afterwards, Fan Ning scolded Wang Chen and said, “Zhang Xuan is an excellent talent in Wuzhong. Why don’t you talk to him? Wang Chen arrogantly replied, “If he really wanted to keep company with me, he could have come to talk to me.” Upon hearing this, Fan Ning, on the contrary, praised his nephew: “You are so graceful and elegant, you are really an excellent talent later.”

Yuchen answered with a smile,” Without an uncle like you, how can I have such a nephew?”
