Hi Cooran,

I found it!
NARRATOR TWO. Meanwhile the novice Rahula, now eleven years old, was living under the Elder Sariputta's care at Ambalatthika, near Rajagaha, where the Buddha returned in due course.
FIRST VOICE. Thus I heard....
~ P84 "The Life of the Buddha According to the Pali Canon" by Bhikkhu Nanamoli
Bhikkhu Bodhi referred me to Nanamoli's book here:

With metta / dhammapal.
