I can't get the meaning of these sentences. Military context. The woman fell short of being killed by an explosion.
Man : “She's good as gold.” […]
Woman : “Feel like I got scorched that color,” she said as she shoved aside the pain. She huffed hard but didn't limp a lick.
Is it an idiom about being “scorched” (as in “burned”) a certain color, or specifically gold ? Anyway, I couldn't find the meaning of this online.
