# Help me understand Gauss law

Suppose I have the following, the gaussian surface is the drawing in the middle. So charge enclosed is zero, and then eletric field must be zero since the area of the gaussian surface is not zero. But, clearly the eletric field is not zero in the middle, because if you put a charge there it will move. Why I'm getting the concept wrongly? Edit: you can consider the middle figure as a sphere.
